Missouri News: Missouri Auditor Galloway’s follow-up review of Putnam County Memorial Hospital reveals an end to questionable lab billings
JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway today issued a follow-up report of Putnam County Memorial Hospital in northern Missouri. Her report last year uncovered $90 million in inappropriate lab billings. The findings of the audit were covered by national news outlets and resulted in calls for a federal investigation into hospital billing schemes.
“Our audit revealed a billing scheme that we now know extends well beyond Putnam County Memorial Hospital and could impact healthcare costs for all of us,” Auditor Galloway said.
