Attorney General Michael A. Delaney announces that the State of New Hampshire has settled a False Claims Act matter involving billing with the Greater Nashua Mental Health Center. The parties settled allegations of improper billing to the Medicaid program. Under the terms of the agreement, Greater Nashua Mental Health Center agreed to pay a total sum of $54,281.76 to the State of New Hampshire.
The investigation arose in 2012 following a review by the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit of improper billing practices by Greater Nashua Mental Health Center. These improper billing practices concerned Psychosocial Rehabilitation services that were coded improperly. The State contends that as a result, Greater Nashua Mental Health received payments from the Medicaid program that it was not entitled to receive. The billings at issue spanned the years 2008 through 2012.
