Arkansas Department of Health Settles Case Involving Excluded Individual

The settlement agreement resolves allegations that ADH employed an individual who was excluded from participation in any Federal health care programs. OIG’s investigation revealed that the excluded individual, a hospice social worker, provided items or services to patients of a community based hospice operated by ADH that were billed to Federal health care programs. Senior Counsel Keshia Thompson represented OIG with the assistance of Paralegal Specialist Eula Taylor.
