A health care operator with several local offices will have to pay nearly $100 million after federal investigators said it knowingly filed false claims to make a profit.
Community Health Systems agreed to pay $98.2 million.
Investigators said CHS engaged in a deliberate corporate-driven scheme to increase inpatient admissions of Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare patients.
CHS has local offices in Mooresville, Statesville and Hamlet.
