A.G. Schneiderman Announces $2.5 M Settlement with Rochester Home Health Agency for Defrauding Medicaid
New York - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced a settlement with L. Woerner, Inc., which does business as Home Care of Rochester (HCR), resolving an investigation into false billings, including billing Medicaid for more than 6,500 hours of services provided by uncertified home health aides and aides who falsely inflated the hours they worked. The bulk of the company's fraudulent billing meant that Medicaid was charged for business costs unassociated with patient care, such as advertising. Under the agreement, HCR, located at 85 Metro Park in Rochester, will refund the Medicaid Program $2,503,932, plus interest.
