New York Medical offices inflated claims, state says
New York Times, November 17, 2008
Eight healthcare providers on Long Island were among 20 in New York that overbilled the state millions of dollars in this decade, the state comptroller's office has said. A 2007 audit conducted by the comptroller's office found that the providers submitted $10 million in inflated claims, mostly by waiving patients' out-of-network fees for the Empire Plan, the state's largest employee health plan. Four of them have paid nearly $7 million in restitution plus civil fines.
