On Friday, July 10, 2015 the State of Hawaii won an order declaring that Liberty Dialysis (“Liberty”) owes over $7 million in funds that Liberty was overpaid for treatments given to Medicaid patients between 2006 and 2010. The State sued Liberty yesterday for false claims, alleging that Liberty deliberately submitted claims it knew would result in overpayments.
Original overpayments to Liberty were due to a computer error in the state department of human services claims processing system resulting in overpayments for claims Liberty submitted for the drug Epogen during dialysis treatments. Last Friday’s administrative decision concluded the outstanding balance Liberty must reimburse is $7,032,108.73
