Judge: Halifax Didn’t Break Kickback Law
A federal judge says the way Halifax Health pays physicians doesn’t violate anti-kickback laws, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal. The ruling will bolster the hospital’s claims that it did not maintain illegal contracts or improperly admit patients. Halifax’s director of physician services filed a whistleblower complaint in 2009. The hospital has spent $15 million preparing its defense, the News-Journal said.
