Beth Israel Medical Center Key Developments

A.G. Schneiderman Announces Lawsuit Against Continuum Health Partners, Inc., Beth Israel Medical Center and St Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced that his office has filed a lawsuit alleging that Continuum Health Partners, Inc., Beth Israel Medical Center and St Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, headquartered in New York, failed to return money to the New York State Medicaid Program that they knew they had no right to have received. The complaint in intervention alleges that between 2009 and 2010 Beth Israel and St. Luke's-Roosevelt, submitted improper claims to Medicaid for services rendered to Healthfirst enrollees as a result of a computer error. In 2010, the New York State Comptroller's office informed Continuum (which at the time of the conduct operated Beth Israel and St. Luke's-Roosevelt) that it had identified a handful of improper claims stemming from the computer problem. After learning of this from the Comptroller's Office, Continuum conducted an internal investigation. The complaint also alleges that in February of 2011, Continuum identified over 900 potentially improper claims to Medicaid, totaling approximately $1,000,000. It also alleges that nonetheless, Continuum failed to take steps to repay all of the affected claims within 60 days after these claims had been identified, and that Continuum proceeded to repay only small batches of affected claims, some of which were brought to its attention by the Comptroller, over the next two-plus years. Final repayments were not made until March 2013, and repayments were made for more than 300 of the claims only after the United States, through the United States Attorneys' Office for the Southern District of New York, issued a Civil Investigative Demand to Continuum concerning these payments in June 2012.

The offending facilities include Beth Israel Medical Center, St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center and The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. The suit alleges these facilities do not have adequate access for disabled individuals, which results in substandard care. The suit seeks declaratory and injunctive relief as well as attorneys' fees.
