CA Joins Whistleblower Suit Against Sutter Health
Health Leaders Media

California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones has intervened in a whistleblower lawsuit against Sutter Hospitals for alleged false billing of what Jones said could be “hundreds of millions of dollars” for anesthesia services, his office has announced.

“Sutter’s alleged fraud comes at the expense of the private health insurance industry, which initially pays for the services, but, ultimately, this unjust burden falls on the shoulders of California’s consumers, who must foot the bill for inflated health care premiums,” Jones said in a media release.
