Orlando TV Investigates Halifax Hospital

The ABC TV station in Orlando reported on allegations that Halifax Hospital put patient’s safety at risk, through unnecessary surgeries and inappropriate admissions, in order to get more money from Medicare and Medicaid. The allegations are part of a whistleblower lawsuit, in which the James Hoyer Law Firm is co-counsel.  The suit was filed by Halifax employee  Elin Kunz.  Kunz discovered the company was over-billing Medicare and tried to get the administration to correct the problem, but she says when they refused, she decided to blow the whistle.  WFTV 9 talked to Kunz in this investigative report to expose the allegations.
