National Hospice Company Accused of Fraud
Federal attorneys are suing Aseracare for fraudulently enrolling non-terminal patients in hospice care. Aseracare is an Arkansas-based company that provides hospice care. The company set high patient quotas for employees to fill and offered prizes to employees. Persons within the company tipped the government off to the company’s fraudulent practices. Hospice care is intended for people in the last couple of months of their life and is generally paid for by Medicare or Medicaid.
