Allstate Sues Florida Brain Injury Hospital

August 30, 2012

Allstate Insurance Company is suing a southwest Florida hospital that treats brain injured patients, alleging the hospital billed the insurance company for $7.6 million in unnecessary medical services.

According to a lawsuit filed Friday, The Florida Institute of Neurologic Rehabilitation in Wauchula created an elaborate marketing campaign to lure patients from Michigan.

Michigan does not have a cap on its no-fault auto insurance, making it a deep well to draw from.

The lawsuit claims the hospital falsified medical records to get millions from Allstate. The insurance company also said the hospital didn’t treat patients, but simply warehoused them.

The hospital declined comment on details of the lawsuit, but said they believed it would be resolved in their favor.

Meanwhile, state officials are investigating abuse allegations at the hospital.
