AHA sues US over unpaid Medicare

Bloomberg Businessweek, November 2, 2012
The American Hospital Association sued the U.S. government for allegedly refusing to pay for "hundreds of millions of dollars" of medically necessary care as required under the Medicare Act. Private auditors used by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services are revoking payments made for in-patient treatment under one section of Medicare, even as that treatment qualifies as necessary under a different part of the act, the organization said in a complaint filed today in Washington.
