An investigation on behalf of certain investors in Community Health Systems (NYSE: CYH) over potential shareholder claims in connection with possible improprieties relating to Medicare billing and reimbursement practices.

According to the investigation by a law firm the investigation focuses on possible shareholder claims against certain current and former officers and directors of Community Health Systems, Inc. (CHS) for possible improprieties relating to Medicare billing and reimbursement practices. According to a lawsuit filed by a former employeeof Community Health Systems, CHS's senior officers and directors allegedly put in place an arrangement with certain New Mexico counties whereby Community Health Systems offered the counties an unrestricted "donation" each year with the understanding that the money would be used towards New Mexico's Sole Community Provider Fund and Sole Community Hospital Supplemental Payments program. These "donations" were then given back to CHS' hospitals, along with a federal government match at a three-to-one rate.
