A home health care company and its owners must “pay back $3.1M to resolve allegations that they falsely billed the state’s Medicaid Program (MassHealth),” according to an October 16, 2020, press release from Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey.  
Altranais Home Care LLC of Lowell, Mass., is expected to repay the money to resolve allegations stemming from January 2014. According to Healey, the company and its owners knowingly or in reckless disregard to billing requirements “submitted false claims to MassHealth and MassHealth Managed Care Entities for home health services that had not been appropriately authorized by a physician."
