The Mercury News

A second insurance giant has sued Saratoga-based Bay Area Surgical Management and its five facilities, claiming that the company submitted inflated and fraudulent bills. The suit, filed Monday by United Healthcare Services, echoes assertions in a $20 million Aetna Insurance suit filed early this year that the company is making millions of dollars and enriching local doctors by sidestepping state and federal laws meant to protect patients and control costs.
