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

the New York Attorney General's Office, and the New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General in achieving this settlement.

New York Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo said, "The size of this settlement underscores the seriousness of the allegations and the importance of vigorous oversight of the Medicaid program and the medical care of our loved ones. Being treated at home is an important option for many New Yorkers, and the companies that provide this service at taxpayer expense have an obligation to ensure that the health care workers they employ are qualified for the job."

"This settlement reflects this office's commitment to investigate allegations of fraud committed on the Medicare or Medicaid programs, especially when the alleged fraud could impact the standard of care received by New Yorkers in need of medical assistance," said Benton J. Campbell, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. Mr. Campbell praised the collaborative efforts of the state and federal agencies that contributed to the recovery of funds for the Medicaid and Medicare programs.

The allegations resolved by today's settlements were initiated by two lawsuits filed under the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act, which allow private citizens to file suit on behalf of the United States for fraud and share in any recovery. Maurice Keshner will receive $251,107 from the government's recovery from Nursing Personnel. Deborah Yannicelli will receive $1,663,040 from the government's recovery from Extended and Excellent.

The lawsuits were captioned as United States ex rel. Keshner v Nursing Personnel Home Care, et al., Civil Action No. 06-1067 (E.D.N.Y.), and United States and the State of New York ex rel. Jane Doe v. Extended Nursing Personnel CHHA, LLC, et al., Civil Action No. 07-4621 (E.D.N.Y.).
