to the fed­eral gov­ern­ment and eight states to re­solve al­le­ga­tions that they billed Medi­care and Med­i­caid for sub­stan­dard ser­vices and un­rea­son­able re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ther­apy ser­vices, the U.S. Jus­tice Depart­ment an­nounced last week, call­ing the agree­ment its largest fail­ure-of-care set­tle­ment. Delaware-based Ex­ten­di­care, which man­ages 156 se­nior-care fa­cil­i­ties in 11 states, also en­tered into a five-year cor­po­rate in­tegrity agree­ment this month with HHS’ Of­fice of the In­spec­tor Gen­eral to im­prove staffing and meet stan­dards to bet­ter de­liver care. The company said in a re­lease that it de­nied en­gag­ing in any il­le­gal con­duct and that it agreed to the set­tle­ment with­out any ad­mis­sion of wrong­do­ing.
