Maryland General Hospital in Baltimore has agreed to pay $750,000 to settle a False Claims Act suit, according to a report in The Baltimore Sun.


The hospital allegedly billed Medicare and Medicaid for multiple procedures using single scans between 2003 and 2009, according to the report.

The hospital has not admitted wrongdoing and settled to avoid the cost of litigation, according to the report.

Whistle-blower Kenneth Creeger, who had worked as a financial analyst at the hospital, will receive $119,728 from the settlement for instigating the suit, according to the report.
