Gentiva made the financial news:
On or about June 19, 2014, the Company received a Civil Investigative Demand from the U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of Missouri, under the federal False Claims Act requesting complete medical records for 14 hospice patients and other documents of Hospice Care of the Midwest, L.L.C., a subsidiary of Harden Healthcare Holdings, LLC (“Harden Holdings”), for the period from January 1, 2009 through June 19, 2014. The Company is in the process of complying with the demand for documents and is cooperating with the investigation.What a difference ten days made in the telling of a prior story:
On or about June 9, 2014, Iowa Hospice, L.L.C., a subsidiary of Harden Holdings, received a Subpoena Duces Tecum (“Subpoena”) from the Office of Investigations, Kansas City Regional Office of the Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services. The Subpoena requests complete medical records for 17 hospice patients and other documents of Iowa Hospice, L.L.C. for the period from January 1, 2007 through June 9, 2014. Harden Holdings is in the process of complying with the Subpoena and is cooperating with the investigation.
I wasn't sure there were any Harden Hospices left, given Gentiva acquired 69 then closed 50. At least two remain and those are being investigated.
