According to Herald-Mail Media, Matthew Neiswanger, a former nursing home owner, settled allegations of Medicare Fraud with the Maryland’s State Attorney General’s office for $2.2 million. The former owner paid the 2.2 million to the State Attorney’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
The state attorney office found Neiswanger was submitting false claims to Maryland’s Medicaid office. The facility would issue eviction notices to its patients, and the patients would have to resort to homeless shelters or non-licensed facilities. It is important to note that there were four other nursing home facilities named within the lawsuit. NMS frivolously countersued the Maryland Department of Health and four of its employees, but the countersuit was later dropped.
Another condition of the settlement was that Neiswanger is no longer to operate in the state of Maryland. However, this doesn’t prevent him from moving to another state to continue his fraudulent acts.
