HCA: U.S. Attorney's Office Requested Information on Medical Necessity of Interventional Cardiology Services

HCA Holdings reported that in July, the Civil Division of the U.S. Attorney's office in Miami requested information on reviews assessing the medical necessity of interventional cardiology services at HCA facilities.

Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA included this information in its quarterly report to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

"Based upon the Company's review to date, which is not yet complete, the Company believes that such reviews have occurred at approximately 10 of its affiliated hospitals, located primarily in Florida. At this time, we cannot predict what effect, if any, the request or any resulting claims, including any potential claims under the federal False Claims Act, other statutes, regulations or laws, could have on the Company," the report said.
