Group wrongly claims $31M EHR payments

One Florida-based hospital management group is now in a rush to revise its financial statements after realizing it owes the government more than $31 million because the group recorded the hospitals' Medicare and Medicaid electronic health record payments as income. 

Health Management Associates, which operates 71 hospitals across 15 states, announced late Tuesday it would amend "as soon as possible" two-and-a-half years of inaccurate financial claims.
