$26 Million Settlement reached in Whistleblower case with CareSource & Entities

Settlement Amount: 

A settlement has been reached in a whistleblower class action lawsuit brought against CareSource, CareSource Management Group Co and CareSource USA Holding Co. They are accused of causing Medicaid to make payments for assessments and case managements they failed to provide to children and adults.

The whistleblowers will receive a $3.1 million share of the government's recovery.

Originally filed in November 2006, the United States alleged that between January 2001 and December 2006, the CareSource entities knowingly failed to provide required screening, assessment and case management for adults, and children with special health care needs. As a result, it was alleged that CareSource received millions of dollars in Medicaid funds to which it was not entitled. The CareSource entities subsequently submitted false data to the state of Ohio so that it appeared they were providing these required services to improperly retain incentives received from Ohio Medicaid and to avoid penalties.
