New Jersey announced that Harshad Patel and his businesses – AP Surgery Center, LLC and AP Diagnostics Imaging, Inc. – have paid a $718,000 settlement for allegedly defrauded the State’s Charity Care Fund by under-reporting annual gross receipts from his businesses. The Charity Care Fund is used to provide subsidies to hospitals that provide “charity” medical care – care for persons not covered by health insurance and who cannot afford to pay. According to the state, Patel and his businesses allegedly under-reported their annual gross receipts on the forms they submitted to DOH for six years, evading more than $1 million in Charity Care Fund assessments in the process. The two relators who flagged the unlawful conduct to the state, Allstate Insurance Company and the Medical Investigation Group, received a $215,400 award. NJ
