Sutter Health, LLC – Medicare Advantage Risk Adjustment Fraud (Case Intervention)

Posted  March 4, 2019

Constantine Cannon represents the whistleblower, Kathy Ormsby, in False Claims Act litigation against Sutter Health and its affiliates including the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, where Ms. Ormsby worked as a Risk Adjustment Factor Project Manager and Coding Manager.  The Sutter Health defendants allegedly inflated the number and severity of Medicare Advantage patient diagnoses, manipulated patient records, ignored audit “red flags,” and engaged in other misconduct in order to increase patient risk scores and obtain Medicare Advantage payments to which they were not entitled. The United States filed a complaint in intervention in March, 2019, and the case continues to be actively litigated.  SeeGovernment Complaint in Intervention; Ormsby First Amended Complaint; DOJ Press Release
