A.G. Schneiderman Announces $2.2 Million Settlement With New Rochelle Nursing Home For Fraudulent Billings
BROOKLYN - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman and U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch today announced that they have entered into settlement agreements with a New Rochelle nursing home resolving allegations that the facility and its owner submitted tens of thousands of inflated claims to the New York State Medicaid Program. The claims sought reimbursement for services provided, but at artificially high rates. Under the agreements, Ralex Services, Inc., doing business as Glen Island Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, and its owner, Leah Friedman, will return $2.2 million to Medicaid, a program jointly funded by the state and federal governments. New York will receive $1,320,000 of the total restitution funds.
