BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A multi-million dollar settlement is reached in a lawsuit against St. Joseph Medical Center.

A judge has ordered St. Joseph to pay nearly $5 million to the state and federal governments.

The hospital disclosed that it admitted patients unnecessarily, billing Medicaid and other government health care programs and generating a larger reimbursement than was proper for each patient.

Of the total amount, $4.75 million will go to the United States and more than $150,000 will go the state of Maryland.
