Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP is Investigating Accretive Health, Inc. on Behalf of its Shareholders
Then, on April 24, 2012, the Minnesota Attorney General released a report which highlighted aggressive and illegal debt-collection practices used by the Company, including demanding payment from people seeking care in emergency rooms, cancer wards and delivery rooms. The report raised concerns that such practices have become common at hospitals across the country. The report also alleged that the Company was violating privacy standards under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act by, among other things: (i) failing to provide appropriate safeguards to prevent the misuse or disclosure of protected health information; (ii) failing to keep all protected health information strictly confidential; and (iii) failing to develop, implement, maintain and use appropriate technical and physical safeguards to preserve the integrity, confidentiality and availability of protected health information and to prevent non-permitted use or disclosure of the information. As a result of this news, the Company's stock plummeted $7.63 per share to close at $10.86 per share on April 25, 2012, a one-day decline of 41% on high volume.
