NHCAA SmartBrief | May 15, 2015

Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, N.Y., will pay $18.8 million to resolve allegations of defrauding Medicare and violating the anti-kickback statute and Stark Law. The medical center was accused of submitting improper claims to Medicare and having an improper financial relationship with Cardiology Consultants of Westchester, which provided it with patient referrals, according to the complaint. The medical center said it could not provide sufficient documentation but thinks its financial relationships with clinical staff "are customary for academic medical centers of its size and complexity."
