HARASSED MINNESOTA HOSPITAL PATIENTS GET CHECKS FROM ACCRETIVE
by TONY KENNEDY
Minnesota hospital patients who endured abusive billing tactics linked to Accretive Health Inc. have begun receiving restitution payments averaging $4,000 apiece, Attorney General Lori Swanson said Tuesday.
Some 90 patients will share $364,000 — part of a $2.5 million pool funded by Accretive to settle a lawsuit filed by Swanson in January. The remainder of the restitution fund — more than $2.1 million — will go to the state’s general fund under terms approved in July by a federal judge. The settlement also bars Accretive from operating in Minnesota for two to six years.
