Indiana University Health Inc. (IU Health) and HealthNet Inc. agreed to pay a total of $18 million to resolve allegations they violated the False Claims Act by engaging in an illegal kickback scheme related to the referral of HealthNet’s OB/GYN patients to IU Health’s Methodist Hospital. According to the government, IU Health provided HealthNet with an interest-free line of credit, the balance of which consistently exceeded $10 million. The government further charged that HealthNet was not expected to repay a substantial portion of this loan and that this financial arrangement was intended to induce HealthNet to refer its OB/GYN patients to IU Health’s Methodist Hospital.
