(HOTCI) by Douglas Stone, HOTCI’s former vice-president of finance. Stone’s suit alleges that HOTCI engaged in fraudulent Medicare billing.

Allegedly the Company’s CEO had verbally directed employees to admit for hospice care patients with Medicare coverage without first fully qualifying whether in fact those patients were eligible for hospice benefits.  After performing an audit, the Company had to discharge at least 150 patients after determining that they were not eligible for Medicare hospice benefits.
