Michigan nursing home to pay $1.25 million fine

Compliance Monitor, September 5, 2007

A Michigan nursing home will pay $1.25 million and enter into a chain-wide corporate integrity agreement (CIA) to settle Medicare and Medicaid fraud allegations uncovered by the Michigan Attorney General's Office.

The fine leveled against Ciena Health Care Management Inc. will be split between the state and federal governments according to the average state/federal Medicaid contributions.

Ciena, located in Southfield, Mich., manages 30 long-term care/skilled nursing facilities that provide healthcare services to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries in Michigan. All 30 facilities will be subject to the CIA, which is expected to cost Ciena as much as $500,000 a year.
