Mental Health Services Company Agrees to Permanent Exclusion

On May 30, 2017, in connection with the resolution of False Claims Act liability, Complementary Support Services, CCS South, LLC, CCS Central, LLC, CCS North, LLC, CCS Metro, LLC, and Clinical Support Services, LLC (collectively, "CSS"), Minnesota, agreed to be permanently excluded from participation in all Federal health care programs under 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7(b)(7). OIG's investigation revealed that CSS submitted false claims for mental health services to the Minnesota Medicaid program. OIG alleged that CSS billed for documentation time despite a state statute and regulations permitting reimbursement only for face-to-face services. Senior Counsel Geeta Taylor and Associate Counsel David Fuchs represented OIG.
