The Rolla Daily News are reporting: Settlement reached in foot care investigation
The United States has reached a civil settlement with St. John’s Mercy Health System and St. John’s Health System, Inc. regarding routine foot care provided by clinics at six St. John’s hospitals in Missouri, according to the U.S. Attorney General's office.
Under the terms of the settlement, St. John’s will pay the United States $2,225,000 to resolve claims that these six hospitals violated the False Claims Act by submitting claims to Medicare for routine foot care in violation of Medicare policy.
