Open Letter to Life Care Associates and Medical Professionals

Re: Government Lawsuit
Today, Life Care learned that the United States government has brought a civil suit against the Company in federal court. The lawsuit alleges that Life Care made false claims to Medicare for medically unnecessary rehabilitation therapy services. Life Care strongly disagrees with the allegations and will vigorously defend its therapy programs and the care provided by the medical professionals involved.
According to the allegations, Life Care provided more rehabilitation therapy than was necessary. Contrary to the government’s allegations, Life Care’s therapy programs improve patients’ conditions and their quality of life. This belief is supported by medical literature, studies, and Life Care’s first-hand experience in observing the progress of patients who receive high intensity therapy.
From our family to yours
When it comes to a loved one, choosing the right nursing home care setting and long-term care options can seem overwhelming. Perhaps you’ve come to this moment – possibly one you never expected to face – feeling unsure, frightened, guilty, concerned … and confused by a million questions you need answered.
