GEICO Lawsuit Against Hudson Regional Hospital Dismissed

Affiliates and individuals also dismissed

SECAUCUS, N.J., Dec. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- A lawsuit filed by GEICO insurance related to billing practices at healthcare entities associated with Hudson Regional Hospital and its owner Yan Moshe has been dismissed (Eastern District Federal Court Docket # 20cv01098).

Claims were dismissed against all the parties named in the suit, including:

  • Hudson Regional Hospital

  • Yan Moshe

  • Dr. Regina Moshe

  • Dr. Nizar Kifaieh

  • CitiMed

"We are pleased with this voluntary dismissal by GEICO," says Yan Moshe, Chairman of Hudson Regional. "This represents the beginning to a transparent and highly functional relationship that focuses on access to high quality medical care to the millions of GEICO- insured patients in New York and New Jersey."

"I couldn't have asked for a better outcome for this claim with GEICO," says Dr. Regina Moshe, CEO of CitiMed. "At CitiMed, we are proud to provide excellent care to all patients and we are especially happy to continue a great relationship with GEICO-insured customers."

"On behalf of our staff, I am very proud of the reputation we have established at Hudson Regional Hospital as its high-quality acute care facility during our three years of operation," said Dr. Nizar Kifaieh, President and CEO of Hudson Regional Hospital. "The voluntary dismissal of the claim by GEICO against HRH and Premier Anesthesia was a logical resolution and a testament to our standing in the community."

"Importantly, after a productive dialogue with GEICO, including an appeal to the Federal 2nd Circuit Court, the lawsuit has been dismissed," said Keith J. Roberts, counsel to Mr. Moshe and the Hospital. "Our clients were pleased with the outcome," he added.

"The outcome is a final disposition, forever precluding the re-litigation of any of the claims which were the subject of their previously filed Complaint," said Charles Horn, Esq. counsel to Regina Moshe, MD, and CitiMed.

"The dismissal of this lawsuit lays to rest any disagreements between GEICO and Hudson Regional, and provides a lasting framework for open communication, transparency and mutual cooperation," said Russell Friedman, long-time counsel to Mr. Moshe and Hudson Regional Hospital.
