The TAF Education Fund has filed an amicus brief in the Aseracare case (aka USA ex rel. Paradies, et al., v GGNSC Administrative Services, et al.). This brief was written by Amy Easton, Colette Matzzie, and Claire Sylvia of Phillips & Cohen, along with TAFEF Attorney Jacklyn DeMar, and it challenges some of the odd rulings made in this case by the district court trial judge.

U.S. District Court Judge Karon O. Bowdre has tossed out a case that alleged AseraCare was fraudulently billing Medicare for hospice care. Judge Bowdre’s ruling comes after a jury originally found AseraCare had filed false claims in 104 out of 121 cases.
