Indiana University Health is facing a lawsuit alleging that it committed fraud by sending high-risk, low-income women to nursing assistants, rather than to doctors, as their paperwork stated. The whistleblower lawsuit was filed by a doctor who served as director of women’s services at HealthNet as well as medical director of ob-gyn services at IU Health Methodist Hospital. The lawsuit alleges that the hospital sent the high-risk, low-income female patients to nursing assistants, when they needed to be seen by doctors. It further alleges that the hospital fraudulently claimed that the women had been treated by doctors.
