HCA Hold­ings, the par­ent com­pany of Nashville-based HCA, has signed an agree­ment with Florida of­fi­cials to drop three law­suits.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

The suits re­late to dis­putes over how much cor­po­rate in­come tax HCA paid to the state. Records from the at­tor­ney gen­eral’s of­fice show that the set­tle­ment re­solved tax pay­ments run­ning from 2001 to 2012. The state will not seek any fur­ther pay­ments from HCA, while the hospi­tal chain will drop its de­mands for re­funds. Florida Gov. Rick Scott was once the CEO of Columbia/HCA, but he left the com­pany in 1997 dur­ing a fed­eral in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Medi­care fraud.
