New York, NY (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
MultiPlan, Inc. today announced its settlement of the California state law qui tam lawsuit brought initially over three years ago by Rockville Recovery Associates, Ltd. against the Sutter Hospital System. Both MultiPlan and their affiliate company Private Healthcare Systems, Inc. (MultiPlan) were named as Defendants in the suit, which alleged false billing of certain anesthesia services on the part of Sutter, and further alleged that MultiPlan aided and abetted Sutter in these practices through the audit provisions of their provider network contracts with Sutter.
This agreement to amicably resolve the matter was made strictly on the basis of the additional costs involved in continuing to defend MultiPlans position. MultiPlan has consistently and vigorously denied any part in any alleged fraudulent scheme. In fact, MultiPlan contends that it should have been dismissed from the suit at its outset, an argument supported by the financial terms of the settlement.
MultiPlan operates preferred provider organizations that act as intermediaries between payers and providers. As an intermediary, it is critical to MultiPlan’s success that provider contracts permit reasonable measures by payers to remedy payment disputes and for providers to do the same. Rockville alleged that the audit provision in MultiPlans contracts with Sutter assisted Sutter in submitting allegedly false, fraudulent or misleading bills to insurance companies with which MultiPlan also had contracts. The audit provision which was not required to be changed as part of the settlement adequately provides both Sutter and payers with a remedy for disputed payments.
In addition, MultiPlan does not have any involvement with or responsibility for billing methodology or the setting of service charge masters for any provider participating in their networks, and Sutter confirmed that MultiPlan had no involvement with Sutters billing methodology. Furthermore, the number of claims with which MultiPlan was allegedly involved was quite small in relation to the total number of claims which Sutter submitted and which were the subject of the lawsuit.
The Settlement Agreement did not require the amendment of the Sutter agreements or any of MultiPlans current hospital network contracts in California. The Agreement did include certain non-financial terms related to network contracts executed with hospitals in California going forward, all of which are already standard MultiPlan contracting practice.
Lawsuit referenced is case number 34-2010-00079432; court of record is the Superior Court, State of California, County of Sacramento.
