Kalispell Regional Healthcare Hospital meets whistleblower settlement mandates

February 19, 2019

Kalispell Regional Healthcare has met initial deadlines for making required improvements to its compliance program as part of a settlement with the federal government over a whistleblower complaint against the hospital.

In September 2018 Kalispell Regional Healthcare reached a settlement with the federal government for 24 million over the course of the next six years. The hospital had allotted $21.5 million in advance of the settlement, which became the largest False Claims Act recovery in the state.
