Mississippi-based Region 8 Mental Health Services agreed to pay roughly $7 million resolve charges of violating the False Claims Act allegations by submitting claims for services not provided or not provided by qualified individuals as part of its preschool Day Treatment program. It is believed to be the largest False Claims Act healthcare settlement in the history of the State of Mississippi. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by a former Region 8 employee. The whistleblower will receive an award of more than $1 million from the proceeds of the government’s settlement. DOJ (SDMS)
