Home healthcare company Avenue Homecare Services, Inc, of Dracut, Massachusetts, will pay $8.3 million to resolve allegations that between 2013 and 2016 it defrauded the state’s Medicaid program, MassHealth, by submitting false bills for unauthorized services not supported by a valid plan of care from a physician.  In some cases, Avenue submitted bills for home healthcare services for patients who were hospitalized at the time of the alleged services.  The settlement also requires the company to implement a compliance program to continue as a MassHealth provider.  MassAG
