    Article - En anglais

    Study objective

    Results 

    One thousand seven hundred fifty-seven complaint investigations were authorized.

    Of the 1,729 investigations completed, 412 (24%) were found to be out of compliance with federal regulations.

    Of these, 27 cases resulted in fines imposed on hospitals.

    These fines ranged from $1,500 to $150,000 with a mean of $33,917, a median of $25,000, and a standard deviation of $35,899.

    The six fines that were imposed against physicians ranged in value from $2,500 to $20,000 with a mean of $8,500, a median of $7,500, and an SD of $8,612.

    Seven hospitals but no physicians were terminated from the Medicare program for COBRA violations. (...)
