Compliance Monitor, May 14, 2008

The owners of a North Natomas, CA, adult healthcare facility will pay $455,000 to resolve allegations they submitted false claims to California’s Medicaid agency Medi-Cal, according to a Sacramento Bee article.
According to the article, a whistleblower lawsuit filed in 2004 accused Miron and Yana Balyasny, Valeriy and Yelena Barash, and Arkady Shturman and Natalia Romachova, and their company, Altamedix Inc., of:
  • Falsifying care plans to qualify patients for coverage for unnecessary services
  • Falsifying patients’ medical records to support the care plans
  • Billing Medi-Cal for improper and unnecessary therapy
    The defendants will pay the federal government $100,000 immediately and the balance over five years.
