Parkland Memorial Hospital To Pay $1.4 Million To Settle FCA Allegations
Dallas-based hospital, Parkland Memorial, agreed to pay $1.4 million to the federal government to settle allegations that Parkland and University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center submitted false claims for rehabilitation consultations that did not occur. Additionally, the settlement resolves allegations that Parkland billed for certain medical procedures without required physician supervision. The settlement resulted from a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the federal False Claims Act by Dr. Lien Kyri, a former medical resident at Parkland. Dr. Kyri’s share of the settlement has not yet been determined.
