ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Federal authorities say a Binghamton hospital has paid $3.4 million to resolve claims it improperly billed Medicare.

Our Lady of Lourdes Memorial Hospital, a 242-bed facility, found billing issues and overpayments from the federal health care program for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Authorities say the hospital took corrective steps and advised the government.

As a result, they say it paid less than the treble damages and penalties authorized under the federal False Claims Act.
