Home health device provider to pay for improper billing

Apria Healthcare, which makes home healthcare devices, has been ordered to pay $750,000 to resolve obligations that they billed patients that were already covered by MassHealth, Massachusetts’ state insurance program.

The State Attorney General’s office told that between December of 2011 and April of 2017, some 1,000 MassHealth members were inappropriately billed, and of those, about 500 had paid Apria.

The settlement ensures patients will get their money back.
