OIG Issues Demand for Stipulated Penalty to Louisiana Nursing Home Chain
On September 18, 2014, OIG issued a demand for a $25,000 Stipulated Penalty against Foundation Health Services, Inc. (Foundation), based on its failure to timely retain an Independent Quality Monitor as required by its CIA with the OIG. Foundation appealed the Stipulated Penalty demand to an Administrative Law Judge and the Stipulated Penalty was later withdrawn after Foundation retained a Quality Monitor and agreed to a two-month extension of its CIA.
