Kaiser Permanente pays $1.8 million over billing flaws

The Oregonian, November 13, 2009

Kaiser Permanente's Oregon-based unit has agreed to pay $1.8 million to settle charges of false billing brought by the federal Medicare program. The U.S. Justice Department said Kaiser's hospice program billed for services without obtaining written certifications of terminal illness required by federal regulations. Kaiser Permanente officials said Kaiser voluntarily disclosed the billing errors to the government in 2005, when the company discovered the errors during an internal review.
