Maxim Healthcare Services, a home health care business, settled allegations that offices in forty-one states, including Ohio, submitted claims for services not rendered. Maxim was also accused of submitting claims without required documentation and having facilities without proper licenses.
Of the $130 million settlement, $121 million will go back to Medicaid. The rest is for damages to the Veterans Administration program.
Of the $14.8 million designated for Ohio, the state share is about $6 million. The federal share totals more than $8.7 million.
