UConn Health to pay $185k to settle overbilling allegations

University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington has agreed to pay the federal government $184,984 to resolve allegations it overbilled the Medicare program, according to the Department of Justice.

The government alleges UConn Health submitted claims to Medicare for wound closure procedures that were improperly coded. The incorrect coding resulted in UConn Health receiving overpayments from Medicare, according to the DOJ.

The settlement resolves UConn Health's liability for improper coding that occurred between Jan. 1, 2011, and June 2, 2016, according to the DOJ.
