$69.5 Million Settlement reached in Whistleblower lawsuit with North Broward Hospital District

Settlement Amount: 

A settlement has been reached in a whistleblower class action lawsuit brought against North Broward Hospital District who is accused of engaging in improper financial relationships with referring physicians.

The whistleblower will receive $12,045,655.51 from the recovery. 

The whistleblower case, filed in 2010, alleged that the hospital district provided compensation to nine employed physicians that exceeded the fair market value of their services.  The United States contended that these agreements violated the Stark Statute and the False Claims Act.  The Stark Statute restricts the financial relationships that hospitals may have with doctors who refer patients to them.
