AseraCare Hospice accused of Medicare fraud

The San Francisco Chronicle, January 9, 2012
A national for-profit hospice care company that is partially owned by a San Francisco private equity firm has allegedly bilked Medicare of millions of dollars, according to a legal complaint filed this week by the U.S. Department of Justice. In court documents, the U.S. government alleges that since at least 2007, AseraCare Hospice of Texas has fraudulently certified patients as terminally ill to illegally collect Medicare payments.
