West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said in a press release Tuesday that his office has reached a settlement agreement with ResCare Inc. for $576,111.43 following an investigation initiated by the Attorney General’s Office’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
The settlement includes full restitution of $279,923.98 in Medicaid claims identified by the MFCU as being fraudulent, as well as additional recoveries totaling $296,187.45 which will be used to pay for the MFCU’s operating expenses.
“This is an important victory for West Virginians,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “Health care providers need to know they must maintain accurate records and only bill for services they actually rendered. They must work within the parameters established by the West Virginia Medicaid Program.”
