LAKE FOREST, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apria Healthcare LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Apria Healthcare Group Inc., announced today that it has settled a matter with the Massachusetts Attorney General concerning issues relating to billings for services provided to MassHealth beneficiaries.
“We are pleased to have resolved this matter with the Massachusetts Attorney General,” said Apria’s Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Raoul Smyth. “Although, as set forth in the Assurance of Discontinuance filed in connection with the settlement between the parties, Apria denies that it has violated any Massachusetts laws, this resolution reflects Apria’s desire to put this matter behind it so that it can continue to focus on the needs of patients. As noted in the press release issued by the office of the Attorney General regarding this matter, the investigation covered the period from December 2011 through April 2017, but Apria in fact addressed the processes that were the focus of the Attorney General early during the pendency of the investigation and long before this settlement was reached. Also, even though we have reduced our Medicaid business in many other states, we have not done so in Massachusetts. The unique circumstances presented in this matter have not changed Apria’s commitment to providing high quality service to MassHealth beneficiaries.”
Any inquiries concerning this matter should be addressed to Mr. Smyth in Apria’s Legal Department.
