Three New York City Home Health Agencies Pay $9.7 Million to the United States to Settle False Claims Act Claims
Date:12/17/2009

WASHINGTON, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Justice announced today that the United States and the state of New York have entered into settlement agreements with three home health agencies to resolve allegations that they submitted false claims to the New York Medicaid and Medicare programs.

The New York Medicaid program provides coverage for home health aides only if those aides have valid certificates showing that they received proper training. The United States contended that Nursing Personnel Home Care (Nursing Personnel) knowingly supplied aides with phony training certificates to Extended Home Care (Extended) and Excellent Home Care (Excellent), which then billed New York Medicaid for the aides' services; that Extended and Excellent knowingly billed for aides with phony certificates who were untrained; and that Extended and Excellent knowingly submitted claims to the Medicare program for home health aide services purportedly rendered by aides supplied by Nursing Personnel that were not actually provided. The United States is receiving approximately $9.7 million as a result of the settlement with these three companies, and the state of New York is receiving approximately $14.3 million, for a total recovery of $24 million.

"Our nation's Medicare and Medicaid patients deserve nothing less than quality health care they can depend on," said Tony West, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division of the Department of Justice. "When home health agencies cut corners to avoid compliance with legal training standards, they seriously undermine the integrity of the care they provide." Assistant Attorney General West thanked the cooperative efforts of the Commercial Litigation Branch of the Civil Division, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York, the Office of Investigations for the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General, the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit of
