E'town Hospital to Pay for Improper Billing
Hardin Memorial Hospital must pay more than $3.1 million to the federal government as part of an $8.9 million agreement involving claims of improper Medicare billing dating back to 2001. Stephanie Collins, public affairs officer for the U.S. Attorney’s Office Western District of Kentucky, said the settlement does not concern patient care or diagnoses. No criminal allegations were made and no court proceedings are pending.
