U.S. Government Refutes Methodist ‘Rhetoric,’ Justifies Intervention in Lawsuit


The federal government, in a recent court filing, says it has significant justification to intervene in the case against Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare and does not have to prove cause. The lawsuit against Methodist, initially filed in 2017, claimed that Methodist and West Cancer executives conspired in an alleged scheme that cost Medicare and Medicaid more than $800 million in fraudulent payments. A former CEO of Methodist University Hospital, Jeffrey Liebman, made the initial allegations, and the former executive dean of the School of Medicine at University of Tennessee Health Science, David Stern, joined in 2019.
