KY Medical Center agrees to $883K settlement over false claims charges

Nashville Business Journal, January 18, 2013
Wayne Medical Center, an 80-bed hospital under the Maury Regional Medical Center umbrella, has agreed to pay $883,451 to the U.S. government to settle False Claims Act allegations self-reported by the hospital in 2012. According to a release put out by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Tennessee, the hospital's compliance program prompted an investigation into the hospital's billing for ambulance transport as part of its emergency medical services.
