Health Leaders Media

Tenet Healthcare Corp., embroiled in a hostile takeover attempt by Community Health Systems Inc., has filed a federal complaint alleging that its bitter rival overbilled Medicare by as much as $377 million using medically unnecessary admissions that improved its bottom line and appeal to investors.

Franklin, TN-based CHS fire back that: “Tenet’s allegations are completely without merit and we intend to vigorously defend ourselves against these unfounded and irresponsible claims.”
