HCM Management Inc., a corporation that runs 11 Iowa nursing home facilities has agreed to pay over $200,000 to settle charges that it employed two individuals who were barred from working in facilities that were funded by federal programs like Medicare and Medicaid.

HCM maintains that all potential employees “undergo a rigorous security background check” which includes the abuse registries and criminal history databases. <!–more–>

In a separate case, Bethany Lutheran Home of Council Bluffs, Iowa agreed to pay $675,000 to settle charges by the
Department of Justice that it overbilled for services rendered between 2005 and 2008. Bethany Lutheran Chief Operating Officer Michael D. Van Sickle said, “Bethany cooperated fully in the investigations and takes full responsibility for the oversight of services provided to its skilled nursing residents.” He said, “Bethany is committed to correcting the process issues that led to the allegations,” the Des Moines Register reported. As part of the settlement, Bethany Lutheran will enter into a “corporate integrity agreement” in which the facility will provide increased training to staffers regarding what services can be billed to federal programs.
