SACRAMENTO — California Attorney General Xavier Becerra today announced a $1 million settlement against the owner and operator of Legacy Post-Acute Rehabilitation Center (Legacy), a skilled nursing facility in San Bernardino, for alleged violations of the California False Claims Act. The settlement resolves allegations that Legacy wrongfully billed Medi-Cal for patients needing a heightened level of skilled nursing care known as subacute care, specifically by failing to provide the minimum number of nursing hours for subacute care and assigning subacute patients to non-subacute beds.
