Attorney General Josh Stein Announces $325,000 Settlement over Medicaid Fraud

Release date: 6/1/2018

(RALEIGH) Attorney General Josh Stein announced today that the State of North Carolina has agreed to settle allegations against Atlanticare Home Care Agency involving the submission of fraudulent claims to the North Carolina Medicaid program. According to the allegations, Atlanticare, a Greenville company, allowed improperly qualified aides to serve patients and produced false documents in response to requests for verification. Atlanticare and its owner, Elbert Moore, will return $325,000 to the North Carolina Medicaid Program.
 
“When North Carolina’s taxpayers pay into the Medicaid program, they expect that money to be used correctly,” said Attorney General Josh Stein. “That is why my office takes Medicaid fraud seriously. We will continue our work to fight against misuse and waste.”
 
This settlement was obtained with the assistance of the North Carolina Department of Justice, Medicaid Investigations Division, and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Medical Assistance – Clinical Policy and Program Integrity.
