A home health agency and its owners have accepted to pay a fine of $5.25 million settlement for false billing after reaching a contract with the state and federal government to resolute claims of deceptively billing Connecticut Medicaid program.
Attorney General of Connecticut claims that the Family Care Visiting Nurse and home Care Agency LLC, located in Stratford, and owned by David and Rita Krett, knew that from the year of January 2009 through April 2016 that it didn’t comply with entire federal and state Medicaid home health care provider requirements and knowing submitted claims for payment for RN home visits which weren’t conducted by RNs. The government also blamed that the agency was also prematurely “flipping” sufferers with dual eligibility for Medicare and Medicaid between the two to take benefit of less restrictive Medicaid reimbursements requirements.
In regard to the payment, of which Connecticut will get $3,152,345.12, the Krett’s have accepted a 5-year corporate integrity contract with the U.S. Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General to conduct annual reviews of Medicare and Medicaid claims for reimbursement.
A home health agency has agreed to pay fine for false billing. The home health agency has offices in Stratford, Woodbridge, Norwalk and Meriden.
