Hospice care fraud case settlement $25 million
MILWAUKEE A Medicare fraud case against one of the nation's largest hospice care providers was settled last month, with the company agreeing to pay $25 million.
It is the second such settlement in six years for Odyssey Healthcare, Inc., which operates in 26 states, including Wisconsin--where it runs hospice offices in Burlington and West Allis.
The current case was started after a nurse and former employee filed a whistle-blower suit.
