Oswego Hospital will pay $1,456,457.33 to resolve False Claims Act charges stemming from healthcare billing improprieties the hospital self disclosed to the federal government.  Dr. Vilas Patil, a physician formerly working as an independent contractor with Oswego, paid $204,365.97 to resolve False Claims Act liability in connection with a related investigation.  Specifically, Oswego identified claims that were paid by federal and state payors where the supporting medical record documentation: (1) was not created or could not be located; (2) contained incorrect service dates; (3) were simply verbatim treatment notes from prior appointments with patients; and/or (4) failed to include time-related information required for certain time-based billing codes.  DOJ
