On April 10, 2012, the DOJ announced that Tenet Healthcare Corporation will pay $42.75 million to settle civil allegations that Tenet violated the False Claims Act by improperly billing CMS for services provided at inpatient rehabilitation facilities.

Inpatient rehabilitation facilities provide intensive rehabilitation services for patients requiring a higher level of treatment, therapy and medical supervision than what can be provided at other facilities, such as acute care hospitals or skilled nursing facilities. The Medicare payment rates for services provided at inpatient rehabilitation facilities are generally higher than services provided at other facilities or in other settings.
