New Jersey Hospital Owes the Feds $85.7 Million

The  OIG recently released an Audit Report, “Review of Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital Payments to University Hospital, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey: July 1, 1995, Through June 30, 2001.” The Audit revealed hundreds of millions in overpayments over a 5 year period due to the miscalculation of acute care DSH claims. The DSH claims  included in the hospital cost reports were false, triggering the overpayments. We will be seeing more DSH False Claims Act cases emerge soon. To see the Audit Report, click here.
