Sacramento Bee

Sutter Health hospitals routinely charged insurers for anesthesia services that were never performed, bogus bills that potentially ran into the hundreds of millions of dollars, the state’s insurance commissioner alleged Wednesday in joining a lawsuit against the Sacramento-based health network.

“We believe the amount of the fraudulent charges is in the hundreds of millions of dollars, if not more,” Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones said Wednesday in a press release.
