Texas Home Health Agency Settles Case Involving Excluded Individual

On April 15, 2016, Choice Home Health Care, Inc., and its former owners Patrick Fettinger and Ann Voss (collectively “CHHC”), Texas, entered into a $89,587.82 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that CHHC employed an individual who was excluded from participating in any Federal health care program. OIG’s investigation revealed that the excluded individual, a home health community liaison/marketing specialist, provided items or services to CHHC patients that were billed to Federal health care programs. Senior Counsel Nicole Caucci represented OIG.
