Stanford Hospital Accused of Alleged $468 Million Dollar Healthcare Billing Fraud; DOJ Filed its Second Statement of Interest in Federal Court

Stanford, CA, June 19, 2020 –(PR.com)– The Department of Justice just filed its second Statement of Interest urging the Federal Court to rule against Stanford Health Care (formerly Stanford medicine, and Stanford Hospitals and Clinics).

The Complaint alleges that Stanford Health Care and its surgeons freely took advantage of a flawed medical payment system by habitually upcoding and unbundling major surgical codes as well as unbundling and charging exorbitant fees; Stanford University also collected money from Stanford Hospital through an undisclosed hefty slush fund entitled the “Dean’s Tax” and monetized Stanford Hospital’s new $2 billion dollar “corridor and arcade” which opened on November 17, 2019; Stanford executives and department managers pushed aggressive billing and maintained a culture of pushing profits at any cost regardless of the medical documentation and records; and Stanford also manipulated patient medical and nursing records to upcode time and units of exorbitant surgical supplies, many of which were never used.
