BALTIMORE (WMAR) -
Attorney General Douglas Gansler has announced that All About You Health Care Services, Inc., a Milford Mill firm, will have to pay for allegations that the nurse staffing and home health care agency submitted false claims to the Medicaid program.
An investigation showed that services performed by All About You were done without adequate medical supervision in violation of regulations. The company has been ordered to pay $159,044 in restitution to the Medicaid program and includes additional penalties.
All About You provides home health aides and nurse staffing to individuals, as well as hospitals, long term care facilities and assisted living facilities. While the company failed to abide by Medicaid regulations which require ongoing physician supervision, it also billed Medicaid for services not rendered.
"These regulations are there to ensure that vulnerable Marylanders receive dependable, competent care," said Attorney General Gansler. "When these rules are violated we'll seek to make Medicaid whole again and make this sort of fraud too expensive to repeat."
