NYU Langone receives federal subpoena over Medicare payments

March 5, 2020 / Jonathan LaMantia

The federal government is investigating NYU Langone over Medicare payments it received to cover indirect medical education expenses, according to a disclosure in the health system’s financial statements.

NYU Langone said that it received a subpoena in January from HHS’ Office of the Inspector General that asked for information related to its Medicare cost reports submitted from 2010 to 2019.

The investigation is focused on “possible false or otherwise improper claims” that it submitted for payment.

The Office of the Inspector General is asking for data and documents used to calculate how much money the health system should receive for indirect medical education expenses. The indirect portion supports teaching hospitals that train physicians and tend to have higher costs.
