Passavant Memorial Homes and its pharmacy subsidiaries have agreed to pay $1,850,000 to resolve allegations that it billed federal healthcare programs, including Medicare and Medicaid, for improperly prescribed controlled substances, in violation of the False Claims Act and Controlled Substances Act. While the controlled substances were prescribed for a legitimate medical purpose, they were not deemed valid with only a doctor’s order by Medicare and Medicaid rules. The company later self-disclosed to the government and has since changed its policy to comply with these rules. USAO EDPA; USAO WDPA
