Norton Settles Overbilling Charges

Louisville, Ky.-based Norton Healthcare has paid the federal government $782,842 to settle claims that it overbilled Medicare for certain services, according to a Courier-Journal report.

Norton faced allegations that it overbilled Medicare for wound care, infusion and cancer radiation services by adding a separate "evaluation and management" charge that should have been included in the basic rate.

The alleged overbilling, which occurred between Jan. 2005 and Feb. 2010, involved outpatient care. The settlement is twice the amount Norton allegedly overbilled.
