The Star- Ledger, June 22, 2012
A hospital in Summit New Jersey and its parent company, Atlantic Health System, Inc., will pay almost $9 million to the federal government to settle charges it overbilled Medicare for health care provided to patients, federal officials said today. The government alleged that the Overlook Medical Center violated the False Claims Act, when, over a seven-and-a-half-year period, they fraudulently billed Medicare for inpatient services, officials said.
