Parkland takes step toward paying $1.4M settlement
May 23, 2013 14:15 GMT
DALLAS (AP) -- The board of Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas has voted to pay $1.4 million to settle allegations that it defrauded Medicare and Medicaid.
The proposed agreement with the U.S. Justice Department was approved late Wednesday. Parkland does not admit liability in the settlement.
The Dallas Morning News (http://dallasne.ws/12xEWQW ) reports details remain confidential because the settlement faces approval by a federal judge. The Justice Department and the state investigated in response to a 2010 whistle-blower lawsuit filed by a physician.
Board members also approved an integrity agreement to require independent monitoring of Parkland's billing and clinical practices for five years. The hospital collects about $425 million annually from Dallas County taxpayers.
President John F. Kennedy was taken to Parkland when he was fatally shot on Nov. 22, 1963.
