Federal audit seeks $3.2 million refund from U hospital


Federal auditors said the University of Minnesota Medical Center should refund more than $3.2 million in estimated overpayments for services they said were incorrectly billed to the Medicare program, according to a report being released Wednesday.

Auditors reviewed 225 claims for payments in 2012 and 2013 and found the hospital did not fully comply with Medicare billing requirements in 130 cases, said the report from the Office of the Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Based on the sample results, auditors estimate the U hospital received overpayments totaling more than $3.2 million during the time period.
