A recently unsealed federal whistleblower lawsuit alleges that 69 Indiana hospitals engaged in a pattern of overcharging patients for their electronic medical records (EMRs). The lawsuit was filed as an alleged violation of the federal False Claims Act.

The alleged misconduct involved nearly $325 million in retained fraudulent payments among the hospitals. Reporting on this developing story during the next edition of Monitor Mondays will be nationally recognized whistleblower attorney Mary A. Inman, calling live from the London offices of Constantine Cannon.
