Illegal Nursing Home Therapy Kickback Scheme Leads to $30 Million Payback Settlement

An alleged illegal kickback scheme has led to a payback settlement in the amount of $30 million. Two therapy companies made an agreement to refer work to each other by paying an upfront sum of $400,000-$600,000 in exchange for referrals and a percentage of revenue from the patients referred. The companies are also restructuring their business arrangements.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General after receiving information from a whistleblower. The whistleblower received $700,000 of the settlement for recovery of losses in the case. For more, read the story.
