LCCA will pay $145 million
Life Care Centers of America will pay $145 million to settle rehabilitation-overbilling accusations, the Department of Justice has announced.
LCCA offers skilled care, assisted living and independent living services at more than 200 locations.
As part of the deal, the firm admits to no wrongdoing.
The company said it has “strongly disagreed with the allegations and believes that it was entitled to payment for services rendered.”
“We deny in the strongest possible terms that Life Care engaged in any illegal or improper conduct,” CEO Forrest Preston said in a statement. “We are, however, pleased to finally put this matter behind us, without any admission of wrongdoing.”
