Former California hospital execs to pay $10 million to settle suit

AP/Yahoo News, January 26, 2010

The former owners of a Los Angeles hospital have agreed to pay $10 million to settle a lawsuit over paying recruiters to bring in homeless people for unnecessary medical treatment. The U.S. attorney's office said that federal and state prosecutors settled their case against Robert Bourseau and Rudra Sabaratnam, MD, former owners of the City of Angels Medical Center. Prosecutors allege the two defrauded Medicare and Medi-Cal out of millions of dollars.
