Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says a nursing home company will pay $376,000 to the state and federal governments over accusations that it submitted ineligible bills to Medicaid.

Zoeller said Monday that the bills from American Senior Communities LLC were for the work of seven employees who have been excluded from the Medicaid program.

A telephone message seeking comment was left for the Indianapolis company after business hours Monday. It has denied liability.

Zoeller says the federal government excludes health care workers who are convicted of various crimes from participating in Medicaid and other federally funded health programs

He says the settlement is the largest his office has received in a Medicaid excluded-provider case to date. He says the state's share of the settlement is $130,000.

  • pay a fine and go on with felons working at Tax payer expense
    So why are these people still working for and the comapny collecting tax payer money? All that was settled by the state is you just need to disguise the workers, shuffle and doctor the paperwork just to comply. There was no part that said felons should not be dealing with our seniors.

    But Mitch's cronies stand to make a lot of money using these people in postions of trust.
  • Who?
    So Who's going to jail? Someone certainly should!
