John Peter Smith Hospital (JPS) in Texas has agreed to pay more than $3.3 million to resolve a qui tam suit filed by its former Director of Compliance, Erma Lee, which alleged that the hospital routinely applied billing modifiers that essentially double-billed federal healthcare programs for certain aspects of patients’ care.  Even after raising the issue internally, JPS allegedly failed to reimburse payors, prompting Lee to file the case in 2018.  For doing so, Lee will receive over $900,000 of the settlement proceeds.  USAO NDTX
