Montana Hospital Pays $10M to Settle Suit Over Radiology Services
A Bozeman hospital has paid out $10 million to settle a federal lawsuit that accused its radiology department of fraud.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported that recently unsealed court documents show Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital paid about $7.2 million to the U.S. government and nearly $239,000 to Montana.
The hospital also paid $2.5 million to the law firm that represented Bozeman radiologists Frank Rembert and Michael Paradise, who filed the lawsuit nearly three years ago.
A hospital spokeswoman says the defendants listed in the case deny all allegations and any wrongdoing.
