DALLAS (AP) — Baylor University Medical Center, Baylor Health Care System and HealthTexas Provider Network will pay about $907,000 to settle allegations of submitting false claims to the government.
The agreement was announced Tuesday by the Department of Justice. Investigators say the health care claims involve various radiation oncology services by the Dallas-based Baylor organizations. The time frame was 2006 through May 2010.
Authorities alleged double billing for various treatments, lack of documentation and improper billing for some higher-cost services.
The Justice Department says there has been no determination of liability as part of the Baylor settlement.
Baylor Health Care System says the issue was over a disagreement with the Justice Department on the "adequacy of some of our billing records." Baylor it settled the issue t to avoid "protracted and expensive litigation."
