Feds settle fraud suit against BIDMC for Medicare overbilling

Federal  authorities won or negotiated fraud settlements totaling $2.4 billion FY 2011, including nearly $234K in May 2011 from BIDMC in a case where BIDMC allegedly overbilled Medicare for drug treatments using the wrong billing code, resulting in the hospital being paid nearly double what it should have been paid for the drug.  BIDMC-Needham paid nearly $60K to settle similar charges that same month.
