Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Taylor Chenery authored an article, “Extendicare Health Services Inc. Agrees to Pay $38 Million to Settle False Claims Allegations,” that was published as a Member Alert by the Fraud & Abuse and Health Care Liability & Litigation Practice Groups of the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA). The article outlined the settlement details, to date the largest False Claims Act (FCA) settlement that DOJ has entered with a nursing home chain in relation to failure of care allegations. Although Extendicare denied the allegations and agreed to the settlement without any admission of wrongdoing, it will pay $28 million to resolve allegations that it billed the government for effectively worthless skilled nursing services and $10 million to resolve allegations relating to medically unreasonable and unnecessary rehab therapy services.
