Behavioral health provider to pay $15.3M over false claims

Federal prosecutors have reached consent judgments with a company accused of fraud while providing mental health and substance abuse treatment services at community clinics throughout Delaware, authorities said Thursday.

Connections Community Support Programs, which also is the former medical and behavioral healthcare contractor for the Department of Correction, has agreed to the entry of consent judgments totaling more than $15.3 million, U.S. Attorney David Weiss said in a news release.

The judgments resolve two lawsuits brought by the federal government alleging healthcare fraud under the federal False Claims Act and violations of the Controlled Substances Act.
