Hartford Courant, May 13, 2008
Greenwich Hospital is the third Connecticut hospital in the last year fined by the U.S. Department of Justice for overcharging Medicare program for certain cancer treatments. The hospital agreed to pay $605,274 in a settlement. Federal law allows hospitals to bill Medicare for one unit of chemotherapy per patient visit. Instead, Greenwich Hospital often billed Medicare for up to five units of chemotherapy per visit for bills sent to Medicare from 2000to 2004.
