Whistleblower Fines Against Tuomey, Adventist Health



A $39.3 judgment million and the specter of hefty fines hang over Tuomey Healthcare System following a jury's decision that it violated the Stark Law and the False Claims Act. Adventist Health will pay $14.1M to resolve false claims allegations. Both cases were initiated by whistleblowers.

It is pretty ironic that the feds are prosecuting this type of infraction when there is no law at all against a hospital buying the physicians' entire practice to get his referrals! All the dangers mentioned of hospitals giving a little extra for referrals are even more true when the hospital brings an entire practice in. Those docs will now be bound to in-house referrals. Stark laws should apply to them too.
