Clinics Resolve Allegations
AmeriHealth and its owners, Ryan and Alban Hatch, consented to a $2 million judgment against them. According to a complaint filed by the United States, AmeriHealth hired vulnerable, compromised, and inexperienced medical staff who were then pressured into providing unnecessary and worthless care, which resulted in false claims being submitted to federal health care programs. The complaint also alleged that they pressured practitioners to prescribe controlled substances and that there was an unlawful kickback scheme with a third-party laboratory.
