Shareholders Group Granted Class-Action Status in HCA Holdings Inc. Lawsuit

Plaintiffs who filed a securities fraud case against HCA Holdings Inc. were granted class-action status in a suit stemming from the company's $4.3 billion initial public offering in 2011. The list of defendants includes HCA's top executives, Chairman Richard Bracken and CEO Milton Johnson as well as several high-profile investment banks, including J.P. Morgan Securities, Lazard Capital Markets and Goldman Sachs & Co. A private equity group owned by affiliates of Bain Capital, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts Co. and Merrill Lynch's private equity arm is also named in the suit. The claim, brought by New England Teamsters & Trucking Industry Pension Fund as lead plaintiff, alleges HCA failed to disclose the company was experiencing a decline in Medicare and Medicaid revenues and had improperly accounted for previous reorganizations in a false and misleading initial public offering registration statement. On September 22, U.S. District Judge Kevin Sharp granted the class action status to HCA shareholders who owned common stock that was bought before the date of filing on Oct. 28, 2011. Based on the drop in the stock price from the IPO to the filing of the claim, the group has suffered more than $1 billion in damages, according to the complaint. The plaintiffs allege that HCA failed to disclose that Medicaid revenue growth had started to decline and was expected to continue to drop as a result of Medicaid cuts in Florida and Texas. Instead, HCA touted an almost 40% increase in Medicaid revenue from 2008 to 2010, which was not indicative of the company's future operating results, according to the claim. The suit also focuses on HCA's cardiology segment, which was losing physicians and was under investigation by the Department of Justice for its cardiac billing practices. An internal investigation revealed HCA was routinely performing unnecessary procedures, according to plaintiffs. The group alleges in the suit that HCA knew its revenue from cardiology services was declining in the quarters before the IPO and that those revenues were likely to continue to drop, according to Sharp's opinion granting class action. HCA argues that it disclosed Medicare revenue declines in quarterly calls before the IPO and that voluminous data concerning the Medicare and Medicaid services was available from federal data sources concerning the government programs. The plaintiffs also claim that HCA improperly accounted for two reorganization transactions as recapitalizations before the IPO, when the company was taken private in 2006 and was reorganized in 2010. The accounting error overstated earnings by $790 million.

Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against JFK Medical Center and HCA for Exorbitant and Unlawful Billing of Auto Accident Patients with PIP Coverage

Charging that JFK Medical Center and parent company HCA, Inc., are in violation of Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Practices Act, two Florida women recently filed a class action lawsuit in Florida state court challenging they and others like them were billed exorbitant and unreasonable fees for emergency radiological services covered in part by their Florida Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. The lawsuit was filed by Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC. Under Florida's No Fault Car Insurance Law, drivers are required to have $10,000 in PIP insurance, which has a 20% out-of-pocket deductible. The complaint, filed in the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit Hillsborough County, charges JFK Medical Center, of Atlantis, Fla., and other Florida HCA facilities with billing PIP patients' rates for radiological services that are 20 to 65 times higher than the rates charged for similar services to non-PIP patients. The lawsuit was brought by Marisela Herrera and Luz Sanchez, both of whom were PIP-covered patients who were treated through JFK Medical Center's emergency department after their automobile accidents in April 2013 and May 2013, respectively. Herrera and Sanchez each received a CT of the brain for $6,404, a CT scan of the spine for $5,900, and a thoracic spine X-ray for $2,222. Herrera also received a lumbar spine X-ray for $3,359.
