According to the Legal Newsline Legal Journal, a $6.5 million settlement was made against the operator of Northern Manor Adult Day Health Care Program (ADHC) that engaged in Medicaid fraud.
Northern Manor ADHC allegedly failed to provide services as represented in its claims for payment to Medicaid. Medical employees of Northern Manor ADHC allegedly falsified medical admissions forms to demonstrate qualifications for services patients were actually too healthy to receive. The facility also allegedly hired unqualified individuals to provide social work services and perform psychosocial assessments.
Under the terms of the agreement, Northern Manor Multicare Center Inc., the nursing home that operates Northern Manor ADHS, will pay $6.5 million to the state. The nursing home also agreed to close Northern Manor ADHC and assist its patients in registering for placement in another state-approved program.
Four Northern Manor ADHC employees were also arrested and could face up to 25 years in state prison for allegations of grand larceny.
