Putting a Stop to Medicaid Fraud

New York -- February 22, 2018

In recent news, we’ve learned that the State of New York has announced a $47 million settlement with CenterLight Healthcare and CenterLight Health System, effectively resolving claims that the company’s Select Medicaid Managed Long Term Care Plan fraudulently billed Medicaid for services rendered to patients who didn’t qualify for the program. According to Empire State News, CenterLight Healthcare’s Select program is a managed long-term care plan that has contracted with the New York State Department of Health to provide long-term community-based health care for members who can stay in their homes without health or safety risks and are expected to need more than 120 days of in-home services, including nursing, therapy, home health and personal care, according to a news release. CenterLight said it billed Medicaid for services provided to 1,241 recipients who didn’t qualify for such services, Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman said in the release.
