St. John Health System, Tulsa, Oklahoma, submitted false claims to Medicare and Medicaid that were tainted by the hospital’s relationship with referring physicians, according to the DoJ. Twenty-three payments were made by the hospital to individual physicians in return for their referrals in violation of the Anti-Kickback Statute. The Anti-Kickback Statute prohibits the payment of kickbacks for the referral of services that are paid for under a federal health care program and can trigger False Claims Act liability.
