Compliance Monitor, January 14, 2009

Seven hospitals in New York have been accused of fraudulently billing the Medicaid program for detox services without the appropriate state certifications, according to an Associated Press (AP) article.

The article also stated that four of the seven hospitals paid kickbacks to get more patients into their drug treatment programs. Another hospital allegedly recruited homeless people to enter a three-day stay in detox in exchange for cigarettes, beer, food, and other items.
