Arlington (TX) Memorial Hospital to pay $1 million fine

Dallas Morning News, January 5, 2010
Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital will pay nearly $1 million to settle False Claim act violations, U.S. Attorney James Jacks said. The hospital was suspected of submitting false Medicare claims, but in the settlement it neither admits wrongdoing or liability in the case. In August 2007, Arlington Memorial Hospital disclosed to the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services that one of its contracts with a physicians group potentially violated federal law, Jacks said in a statement.
