Johns Hopkins, Sibley Hospital pay $5M to settle improper compensation allegations

Washington, D.C.- based Sibley Hospital and its parent company John Hopkins Health System agreed to pay $5 million to settle Stark Law violation allegations. 

The settlement resolves allegations that Sibley violated the Stark Law from 2008 through 2011 by billing Medicare for services referred by 10 cardiologists to whom it was paying compensation that exceeded the fair market value of the services provided, according to an April 17 Justice Department news release. 

Sibley and Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins self-disclosed the violations, according to the release.
