Hospitals Accused of Overcharging

Georgia’s state auditor charged that thirteen Georgia hospitals were charging from 2 to 50 percent more for treatment of patients using Medicare and/or Medicaid than for private patients. A spokesman St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens - one of the hospitals listed by the auditor - responded that it was simply attempting to regain funds lost in the treatment of those patients.
