Humana says US Attorney asked about FL claims

Bloomberg, May 2, 2012

Humana Inc. (HUM), the second-biggest provider of private Medicare coverage, said the U.S. Justice Department is investigating its coding of medical claims from South Florida doctors and loans made to physician practices. The U.S. Attorney's Office in Miami requested documents and other information from Humana and its affiliates on Jan. 6, the Louisville, Kentucky-based health insurer said in a regulatory filing yesterday. Humana didn't say how it responded, and didn't respond immediately to a telephone call seeking comment. The company said yesterday its internal probe is continuing and involves "relationships" between some of its Florida employees and Medicare and Medicaid providers, the financial support of nonprofit or provider centers that enroll Medicare patients and "financial support" made to doctor practices.
