New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman and U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch announced they have entered into settlement agreements with New Rochelle nursing home Ralex Services, Inc., doing business as Glen Island Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, to resolve allegations the facility and its owner Leah Friedman submitted tens of thousands of inflated claims to the New York State Medicaid Program. According to the government, the 182-bed Glen Island facility submitted more than 62,000 false claims to New York’s Department of Health from April 2002 to November 2006. The false claims used Medicaid reimbursement rates based, in part, on up-coded Patient Review Instruments (PRIs), which falsely represented the degree of care required by many Glen Island residents. Under the settlement, Glen Island Center and Friedman will return $2.2M to Medicaid. NYAG
