Numotion to settle Medicaid lawsuit

Mike SwinfordBRENTWOOD, Tenn. – Numotion has agreed to pay $7 million to settle a lawsuit related to Medicaid claims for mobility equipment as part of an agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Kentucky. 

The company says the allegations focused mainly on a complicated set of Medicaid billing regulations that it believed, in good faith, that it was interpreting correctly.  

“Numotion is committed to cooperating with external investigations, as well as fulfilling our responsibility to submit self-disclosures where appropriate,” said Mike Swinford, CEO. “We are proud of the work we do helping our customers lead active and independent lives, and we are dedicated to supporting them with medically necessary products and services. Putting this matter behind us ensures we can direct all our attention to our mission.” 

Numotion says the settlement, which was also signed by the Office of Inspector General and the Department of Health and Human Services, was reached without any admission of liability and there was no indication that any equipment provided was not reasonable and medically necessary. 

Also as part of the settlement, the company has entered into a Corporate Integrity Agreement with the OIG to implement specific corporate compliance obligations that complement its existing program.
