Hebrew Homes Health Network Inc., a Florida-based operator of rehabilitation and skilled nursing facilities, along with its former president and executive director William Zubkoff, agreed to pay $17 million to resolve allegations it violated the False Claims Act by improperly paying doctors for referrals of Medicare patients requiring skilled nursing care.  It is the largest settlement involving alleged violations of the Anti-Kickback Statute by skilled nursing facilities in the US.  The allegations against Hebrew Homes first arose in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by Stephen Beaujon, a former CFO of Hebrew Homes, under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  He will receive a whistleblower award of $4.25 million.  Whistleblower Insider
