Beaumont settles $84.5 million federal whistleblower case

August 2, 2018

Beaumont Health has agreed to pay an $84.5 million settlement to the U.S. Department of Justice, state of Michigan and four whistleblowers for violating federal laws that bar hospitals from overcompensating physicians and filing false claims.

The settlement resolves whistleblower lawsuits filed by four former employees and physicians of Beaumont that go back to contract arrangements with physicians from 2004 to 2012.
