Wyoming Medical Center settles Medicare fraud suit for $2.7M
Wyoming Medical Center will pay the federal government $2.7 million to settle a lawsuit alleging that the Casper hospital submitted fraudulent claims to Medicare. Gale Bryden, the former WMC employee who filed the suit, will receive an unspecified share of the settlement, the U.S. Attorney's Office for Wyoming said Monday while announcing the deal. Bryden accused the hospital of defrauding Medicare by changing the admission status of patients to bill the government for more money and by submitting reimbursement claims that were inconsistent with patient records.
