Amedisys to Pay $150 Million in Medicare False-Billing Case

Amedisys Inc., one of the largest home-nursing providers, will pay $150 million to settle U.S. claims that it falsely billed Medicare and that it entered into improper financial relationships with referring physicians.

The accord announced today resolves claims that Amedisys billed Medicare from 2008 to 2010 for services that weren’t medically necessary, for patients who weren’t homebound and for people who didn’t need skilled nursing and therapy services.
