NEW YORK, March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a national law firm concentrating on investor rights, consumer rights and enforcement of federal antitrust laws, is investigating potential wrongdoing at Huron Consulting Group, Inc. ("Huron" or the "Company") (NasdaqGS: HURN). The investigation focuses on possible breaches of fiduciary duties by the board of directors and/or officers of the Company in connection with violations of the False Claims Act.
Specifically, the investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duties by the Company's officers and directors in connection with overbilling Medicare and Medicaid by $50 million while running St. Vincent Catholic Medical Centers. It is alleged that after Huron took control of the hospitals, it authorized tens of millions of dollars in bogus outlier claims -- supplemental reimbursements offered by Medicare and Medicaid to protect hospitals that provide unusually expensive inpatient treatment -- and even kept track of the fraud in a second set of books.
