Courthouse News Service

Federal auditors are illegally “clawing back” hundreds of millions of Medicare dollars over minor patient treatment decisions, and getting a cut based on how much they can take back, the American Hospital Association claims in court. Joining as plaintiffs with the American Hospital Association (AHA), which represents nearly 5,000 hospitals, are three individual hospitals and Trinity Health Corp., a Catholic chain that owns 35 hospitals and manages 12 more.
