Early Autism Project, Inc. (“EAP”) agreed to pay the United States $8,833,615 to settle allegations brought by whistleblower and former employee of EAP, Olivia Zeigler, that it submitted false claims to TRICARE (a military insurance program) and South Carolina’s Medicaid program for therapy services for children with autism. The therapy services were misrepresented or were never provided. EAP allegedly also created a program under which it billed Medicaid for functions that were not related to therapy services at all and permitted its therapists to regularly bill for more hours than they actually provided therapy services. Olivia Zeigler will be awarded $435,000. DOJ
