Cedars-Sinai sues HealthCare Partners over more than $6M in unpaid bills

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles filed a lawsuit Jan. 3 against HealthCare Partners, alleging the El Segundo, Calif.-based medical group owes the hospital more than $6 million, according to the Los Angeles Business Journal.

In the complaint, Cedars-Sinai claims HealthCare Partners has relied on the hospital to provide lifesaving care to patients and then either paid nothing or only a small percentage of the amounts due. 

"HealthCare Partners failed and refused to fully honor its obligation to pay," the complaint reads, according to the report.

A HealthCare Partners spokesman told the Los Angeles Business Journal the medical group denies the merits of the lawsuit.

HealthCare Partners is a subsidiary of Denver-based DaVita.
