OCR 2016 settlements keep coming - Ep 69
So far in 2016 there have been 10 resolution agreements announced. One more and this year will equal the number of agreements in all of 2015 & 2014!
The latest two also include the largest one announced yet - $5.5m with Advocate Health.
Before that though was The University of Mississippi Medical Center - Ole Missto those of us in the SEC world. It wasn't something to 'shake a stick at' with a$2.75m resolution amount.
The total amount for those 10 announcements so far in 2016 = $20,314,800
