Healthkeeperz to Pay #2.1 M for Violating False Claims Act

Attorney General Josh Stein yesterday announced that Healthkeeperz, Inc.,  a Pembroke behavioral health care provider, will pay $2.1 million to  resolve allegations that the company violated the False Claims Act by  billing claims that were not reimbursable to Medicaid programs. Healthkeeperz provides case management services for Medicaid  beneficiaries under the North Carolina Medicaid Community Alternatives  Program for Disabled Adults (CAP/DA).

The settlement resolves  allegations that from January 1, 2016, through October 31, 2019,  Healthkeeperz submitted reimbursement claims to North Carolina Medicaid  and received payments for services that weren’t covered by Medicaid.
