Two nursing homes are on the hook for nearly $900,000 to the federal government after investigators determined they were involved in questionable activities.
Bethany Lutheran Home owes $675,000 for overbilling Medicare and Medicaid for “certain therapy services” between 2005 and 2008, according to WOWT.
The home must also provide additional training to its workers.
HCM Management, which runs 11 nursing homes in Iowa, allegedly employed two workers who had been barred from working in a federally funded facility. HCM owes just over $200,000 to the federal government.
The company stated all individuals applying for work at HCM need to “undergo a rigorous security background check,” although this clearly was not the case when they hired the two ineligible workers.
