Three Florida hospice providers-Health and Palliative Services of the Treasure Coast, Inc., The Hospice of Martin and St. Lucie, Inc., and Hospice of the Treasure Coast, Inc.-will pay $2.5 million to resolve False Claims Act allegations that between 2005 and 2011, they billed Medicare for hospice services provided to patients who were not eligible for all or part of their hospice care under Medicare requirements. Two whistleblowers who initiated the suit, John Simons, M.D. and Lewis Cook, M.D, will receive more than $467,000 from the recovery for their role in bringing the fraud to light. USAO SDFL
