LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A southern Kentucky Hospital settles a $16.5 million fraud case.

St. Joseph London Hospital will pay the federal government to settle claims that it submitted false or fraudulent Medicare and Kentucky Medicaid claims for unnecessary heart procedures.

Federal prosecutors say several doctors at the hospital performed unneeded coronary stents, pacemakers and diagnostic catheterizations, then billed the federal programs.
