The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee has made public a suit filed by Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III against Franklin-based ProHealth Rural Health Services and its president and chief executive officer, Ray White. As detailed in the complaint, the state alleges White knowingly submitted invoices to the State of Tennessee that falsely inflated the number of Medicaid patient visits to ProHealth from 2012-2017. That caused TennCare to pay ProHealth more than $6,000,000 to which it was not entitled. The State is seeking $18,722.234 in damages under the Tennessee Medicaid False Claims Act and $440,000 in fines.
