Reiss Comments on Tenet Healthcare Lawsuit

"Tenet Accused of $1 Billion Medicare Fraud", USA Today

May 3, 2005

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."
