Oklahoma Heart Hospital, LLC and Oklahoma Heart Hospital South, LLC (collectively “OHH”), have agreed to pay $2.8 million to resolve a qui tam suit by a former employee, which alleged that OHH violated the federal and state False Claims Acts and defrauded Medicaid by submitting claims for outpatient procedures as if they were inpatient procedures.  Though multiple allegations were raised in the lawsuit, only the allegation involving the upcoded claims was intervened by the government; the other allegations will be dismissed as part of the settlement.  USAO WDOK
