About the Lawsuit

Universal Health and certain executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

The alleged false and misleading statements and omissions include, but are not limited to: (i) Universal Health admitted patients on its own financial considerations and not upon medical necessity; (ii) Universal Health kept patients admitted until their insurance payments ceased to ensure the maximum payment for services; (iii) as a result, Universal Health's revenues from inpatient care relied on unsustainable practices; (iv) Universal Health lacked effective internal control concerning its practices and policies of admitting patients. Therefore, Universal Health's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
