Skilled Nursing Facility Settles Rehab Claims


Old Man’s Home of Philadelphia, doing business as Saunders House, will pay $819,640 to settle claims that the skilled nursing facility provided medically unnecessary rehabilitation therapy to residents to maximize revenue and without prioritizing clinical needs. The resolution is based on claims that Saunders House caused the submission of false claims for Ultra High (RU) Resource Utilization Group (RUG) therapy levels despite evidence that the RU level of therapy was not reasonable or necessary for the respective patients.
