Amedisys to pay $150 mln for over billing Medicare -U.S.

WASHINGTON, April 23 (Reuters) - Home healthcare company Amedisys Inc will pay $150 million to resolve allegations that it submitted false billings to Medicare, the U.S. Justice Department said on Wednesday.

Louisiana-based Amedisys between 2008 and 2010 improperly billed for unnecessary services or misrepresented patients’ conditions to boost payments, the department said. (Reporting by Aruna Viswanatha. Editing by Andre Grenon)
