Description

To produce this story, we spent months finding and interviewing former employees of the company. They told us Life Care was giving patients physical, speech, and occupational therapy they did not need, and billing the government for money they were not entitled to. Helen Toomey, a former assistant manager and speech therapist, said by the time she left in 2012, 40 percent of the work she was being told to administer was not reasonable or necessary. She also shared patient notes with us that she said showed how Life Care would not let patients leave so they could continue to bill Medicare.
