Reiss Comments on Tenet Healthcare Lawsuit
"Tenet Accused of $1 Billion Medicare Fraud", USA Today
John B. Reiss, Partner and Co-Chair of Saul Ewing's Health Law Practice Group in the Philadelphia office, was quoted in this article discussing the lawsuit filed recently by Florida's attorney general against Tenet Healthcare, a hospital chain that owns 78 hospitals in 13 states. The suit alleges that Tenet drove up its prices to collect approximately $1 billion from a special Medicare fund.
Mr. Reiss stated that what the hospital chain did may have been "...outrageous, but there was nothing illegal about it."
