Sutter Health Faces Billing Fraud Allegations.

The San Jose Mercury News (4/21, Gumz) reports, Sutter Health is “accused of overcharging insurers for anesthesia services,” and California state Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones “contends the amount of fraudulent charges over the past decade ‘is in the hundreds of millions of dollars if not more.'” Jones announced last week that he is “joining a lawsuit against the Sacramento-based health provider, which has 24 hospitals and 3,500 doctors in its network.” The insurance commissioner “claims the fraud took place at Sutter hospitals throughout Northern California.”
