Freeman Health System in Joplin has been hit with a $9.3 million fine for violations of the Stark Law and the False Claims Act. The hospital had given incentive pay to 70 physicians in violation of federal law. This follows a $60M 2008 settlement by Missouri based Cox Medical Centers for similar allegations.
