Federal Investigation Looks for Stark, Anti-Kickback Violations at Florida's Broward Health

A federal investigation is examining physician contracts at Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based North Broward Hospital District, according to a Sun Sentinel report.

Agents from the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services issued the district, also known as Broward Health, a subpoena May 17 to review contracts given to more than 27 physicians for violations of Stark and Anti-Kickback laws.

The agents said they issued the subpoena in connection with an investigation over possible false claims to Medicare and Medicaid relating to physician reimbursements, according to the report.

North Broward has issued a statement saying it will cooperate with the investigation.
