    Mayo Fined $6.5 Million

    PARENT ORGANIZATION OF MAYO CLINIC PAYS U.S. $6.5 MILLION
    TO SETTLE GRANT FRAUD INVESTIGATION

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Mayo Foundation, parent organization of the Mayo Clinic, has paid the United States $6.5 million to resolve allegations that it charged the government under federal grants for research costs unrelated to the research projects sponsored by those grants, the Justice Department and the United States Attorney from Minnesota announced today.

    The Rochester, Minnesota-based foundation receives hundreds of grants each year from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other government agencies, each grant covering a distinct research project. The Mayo Foundation may charge the government only for costs related to the specific research covered by the grant. This requirement allows the government to control the use of its research funds and protects taxpayers from waste and abuse.

    Today settlement demonstrates our commitment to vigorously pursue allegations of fraud and abuse in federal grant programs said Peter D. Keisler, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division of the Department of Justice. All recipients of federal grants must comply with the restrictions placed on the use of that grant money.

    The settlement resolves allegations that Mayo wrongly charged the government by including on underspent grants research costs incurred on overspent grants and internal Mayo cost centers. As a result, the government contended, the United States paid Mayo more under the grants than Mayo was entitled to receive. The governments investigation showed not only improperly transferred expenses, but also that Mayo had an accounting system unable to monitor and manage charges made to federal grant awards in the manner required by federal law.

    The settlement resolves a whistleblower lawsuit filed against Mayo by Christine Long, an accounting associate in Mayo’s research accounting department. Under the qui tam or whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act, a private party can file an action on behalf of the U.S. and receive a portion of the settlement if the government reaches a monetary agreement with the defendant. As a result of today’s settlement, Ms. Long will receive $1.3 million.

    Government supported medical research, free from fraud and abuse, is in the best financial and public health interest of the United States, said U.S. Attorney Tom Heffelfinger.This settlement makes clear that all medical researchers, regardless of size and experience, must comply with regulations designed to protect precious federal medical research funds.

    Biomedical research institutions currently receive about $20 billion in NIH funding, said Daniel R. Levinson, Acting HHS Inspector General.Making certain that funds are appropriately charged is crucial to saving taxpayer money.

    The case was jointly handled by the Justice Department’s Civil Division and the United States Attorney’s Office in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in collaboration with the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of the NIH Legal Advisor, and the Office of Policy for Extramural Research Administration at NIH.

    They got off easy

    they got off easy. It was more like 60 to 100 million that the marble mother stole from us. I talked to a lawyer who was involved for a while and he said Mayo “stood like a tomb stone over the graves of their fraud and the the government just had to finally give up”. I still hear rumors that they are doing the same fraud in a complex system designed to bury the evidence where no-one will find it. The more ‘compartments’ and ‘shifting’ the less any one employee knows. No wonder there are more and more dunderheads in administration.

    We NeeD TO SPEAK UP LOUDLY

    We are all TRUSTING people, especially of Mayo doctors, and to find DOCUMENTED & FACTUAL medical records that completely contradict everything we were verbally told to our face – is NOT acceptable.
    WHAT WOULD YOU THINK if you were told in a Mayo Clinic ER you were in an advanced stage of kidney cancer that had spread to my lymph nodes and lungs. Then see “PRESSUMED TRANSITIONAL CANCER” and only “RENAL MASS” on your medical records.
    Remember, the facts are:
    I have no left kidney and all associated parts.
    I am NOT A CANCER SURVIVOR nor do I have CANCER NOW.
    BUT, I am a SURVIVOR of Septic shock, organ and resp failure, spent 20+ days on life support/ventalator 3 months in Mayo. Then rec’d registered letter refusing to treat me as of 4/30/2010, because I ask questions and wanted to understand al that had happened to me. Well this is the only Dr we were allowed to see from Urology.
    Please excuse the background noise, and my tone. I think anyone hearing what I heard would be upset an mad. I really need to share my experience so your are NOT THE NEXT VICTIM. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR ANY PATIENT TO BE TOLD – We need to speak up. Michael & Georjean Parrish
