CA health care systems pay $2M in federal claims
San Francisco Chronicle

Federal authorities say two California health care operators have paid $2.3 million to settle claims that they overcharged the government for medical services.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento said Wednesday that Sutter Health Association has paid more than $1.4 million to the United States and Catholic Healthcare West paid more than $875,000.

Federal Department of Health and Human Services auditors found the two improperly billed the government more than once for the same medical procedures.
