Health Leaders Media

Community Health Systems, Inc. has asked a federal judge in Dallas to throw out a “baseless lawsuit” brought by rival Tenet Healthcare Corp., alleging that CHS practices widespread and systematic overbilling of Medicare.

In a petition filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas on Tuesday, Franklin, TN-based CHS said the Tenet suit is “entirely without merit and contains a number of fatal flaws.”
