Oklahoma Hospital, Former Administrator, Doctors Agree to $1.6 M Settlement

April 13, 2017

The U.S. Department of Justice says Norman Regional Hospital, a former hospital administrator and six doctors have agreed to pay a total of $1.6 million to settle allegations the false claims were filed for federal Medicare payments.

A civil lawsuit alleged former hospital administrator Greg Terrell and doctors Chadwick Webber, Merl Kardokus, Rick Wedel, Gautham Dehadrai, Barbara Landaal and Sanjay Narotam billed Medicare for radiology services that were not personally supervised by a physician, as required in order to receive Medicare payments.

The defendants did not admit liability, but the settlement allows both sides to avoid the “expense, inconvenience, and uncertainty involved in litigating the case.”
