Atlanta Georgia Elder Law Attorney Medicare Medicaid Nursing Home Care Lawyer, Ira M. Leff, Attorney at Law

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Since 1989, my practice has concentrated in the area of elder law.  I work with families who are facing the likelihood of having to pay the high cost of long-term care and they do not have sufficient funds or insurance to cover that cost.  I assist the families with incapacity planning (powers of attorney and advance health care directives); estate planning (wills and trusts); retirement planning; Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, health insurance, pharmaceutical insurance and long-term care insurance; Veteran’s Benefits; housing options; and nursing home malpractice.

Sixteen Individuals Charged in $60 Million Medicare Fraud Scheme

Harris would direct that beneficiaries be placed on continuous care, whether the beneficiaries needed this service or not. This decision would often be made without any consultation with a physician. Continuous care physician’s orders were falsified and uploaded into Novus’s electronic medical records database. When a beneficiary was on continuous care, the Novus nurses would administer high doses of Schedule II controlled medications such as morphine or hydromorphone, whether the beneficiary needed the medication or not. The defendants and others obtained these Schedule II medications with “C2” prescription forms (used for the prescription of controlled substances) which had been unlawfully pre-signed by medical directors. One reason for this aggressive medicating practice was that Harris wanted to ensure that the beneficiaries’ medical records contained documentation that would justify billing Medicare at the higher continuous care billing rate. There were instances when these excessive dosages resulted in serious bodily injury or death to the beneficiaries.
