Tennessee man to repay $1.3M for Medicare fraud

Compliance Monitor, February 20, 2008

A Tennessee man will pay the federal government $1.3 million to settle civil and criminal Medicare fraud allegations, according to a Department of Justice press release.

Charles Madison Warren, III, owned and operated Complete Home Health Care, Inc., a home health agency that served Medicare beneficiaries, and Complete Health Professional Services, Inc. (CHPS), an agency providing private duty nursing services to non-Medicare beneficiaries, in Clarksville, TN.

Warren submitted misleading representations about CHPS, which was not Medicare certified. Those representations led Complete Home Health Care to receive more Medicare reimbursements than it should have in 1998, 1999, and 2000.

Warren previously was ordered to pay $533,951 in restitution to the Medicare program for committing criminal healthcare fraud and he agreed to pay an additional $774,321 to settle the civil suit. He has served one year and one day in prison.
