Statement by Censeo Health, LLC on Government Declination in Qui Tam Case
DALLAS – August 12, 2015 – CenseoHealth is proud of the work we do on behalf of health plans and their Medicare recipients and is committed to full compliance with federal law and to operating under the highest ethical standards.
Federal law authorizes individuals to file lawsuits (called qui tam actions) alleging that fraud has been committed against the government and receive a portion of any recovery if there is one. The U.S. Department of Justice is required to investigate the allegations and may intervene in the lawsuit if it believes the lawsuit has merit.
Given our commitment to the highest ethical standards, we were pleased when after conducting a detailed investigation of the qui tam lawsuit, the Department of Justice, in June, decided not to intervene in a lawsuit filed against the company by a former employee relating to the company's in-home assessment program. If the former employee decides to take the case forward, notwithstanding the government's refusal to join in the lawsuit, we are confident that the evidence will continue to show that the company acted properly and legally.
