Q&A: Reporting Civil Judgments

  1. A health plan won a civil judgment against a clinical laboratory for submitting false claims. Two other health plans were party to the suit and received larger awards. Should all three health plans submit reports to the NPDB?

    No. With respect to reporting health care-related civil judgments to the NPDB, when there are multiple health plans as claimants and a Government agency is not party to the suit, the health plan that receives the largest award is responsible for reporting the total action for all parties.
