According to the complaint, defendants made false and/or misleading statements regarding that: (1) the Company admitted patients based on its own financial considerations and not upon the medical necessity of the patient; (2) the Company would keep patients admitted until their insurance payments ran out in order to ensure the maximum payment for its services; (3) as a result, Universal Health's revenues from inpatient care relied on unsustainable practices; (4) in turn, Universal Health lacked effective internal control concerning its practices and policies of admitting patients; and (5) as a result, Universal Health's public statements were materially false and misleading.
On December 7, 2016, Buzzfeed published a piece on Universal Health, alleging that the company puts profits ahead of its patients. On this news, shares of Universal Health fell by $15.01 per share, or approximately 12%, closing at $111.36 per share on December 7, 2016.
