Referrals Get Ohio Hospital Into Hot Water

Memorial Hospital of Ohio recently settled government claims related to improper referrals under the Anti-kickback and Stark statutes. These statutes restrict the financial incentives that health care providers can provide to other health care providers. The allegations concerned Memorial Hospital’s financial arrangement with a joint venture it had with a pain management physician and a relationship with an ophthalmologist who sold intraocular lenses at inflated prices through the hospital. The violations were self-reported. Memorial Hospital will pay $8.5 million to settle the violations.
