Pennsylvania hospice company Compassionate Care of Gwynedd Inc., and a subsidiary of New Jersey-based Compassionate Care Hospice Group Inc., agreed to pay $2 million to resolve allegations it violated the False Claims Act by providing unnecessary hospice services.  The government alleged the company admitted patients by using a diagnosis of “debility” that was not medically justified.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  The whistleblowers will receive an award of more than $350,000 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (DNJ)
