State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo subpoenaed more than 50 home health agencies (HHA) in New York City on Monday, according to the Associated Press (AP).
This action was prompted by the findings of Medicaid investigators who discovered aides working with false certifications and bills for services that were never provided. The subpoenas asked for information about home health aides with billed services to Medicaid by several different home health agencies. Credentials, hours billed, and the names of the agencies that sent the aides on assignments are included in the list of information that HHAs must verify. The subpoena also required ten of the largest agencies to submit additional information, according to AP.
