Bon Secours Mercy Health obtains favorable settlement of FCA allegations

Client(s) Bon Secours Mercy Health

Jones Day represented Bon Secours Mercy Health ("BSMH"), one of the nation's largest health systems with 50 hospitals and over 60,000 employees, in a False Claims Act qui tam action brought by a private relator and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Ohio. The allegations involved whether certain BSMH sleep centers applied appropriate standards in scoring diagnostic tests and prescribing CPAP treatments billed to Medicare. Jones Day was able to successfully negotiate a favorable settlement and release on behalf of the client and avoid a corporate integrity agreement.
