Simi Valley Hospital in Los Angeles has paid the federal government $5.15 million to resolve whistleblower allegations that the hospital filed false claims with Medicare over a six-year period.

The lawsuit, which was originally filed by a former employee at the hospital, alleged that its Behavioral Medicine Services unit knowingly submitted false claims to Medicare for chemical dependency and psychiatric patient services performed between 1991 and 1997.
