Saint Barnabas Health Care System
Saint Barnabas, New Jersey's largest health care provider, allegedly cheated Medicare out of more than half a billion dollars over the past eight years by inflating charges for patients with serious illnesses. Prosecutors claimed that Saint Barnabas hospitals deliberately inflated charges under the Medicare program that increased reimbursements to hospitals that care for people with medical complications. The hospitals will pay $265 million to settle the allegations and must accept an outside monitor that will track and supervise Medicare billings for the next six years. (Jun-15-06) [ABC 6 NEWS]
