Tenet Healthcare Corp. pays $5 million to settle False Claims Act case

The Miami Herald, May 1, 2014

Tenet Healthcare Corp., owner of four Miami-Dade hospitals, paid $5 million in December to settle a South Florida whistle-blower lawsuit alleging that the company paid kickbacks to doctors by allowing them to lease offices at below-market rates, among other favorable terms, in return for patient referrals — a violation of federal and state laws. To settle the False Claims Act case, Tenet paid $4 million to the federal government — with $1 million of that going to the South Florida landlord who was the whistle-blower in the case — and an additional $1 million for legal fees and other costs. Tenet admitted no wrongdoing.
