LHC Group, Inc currently faces a lawsuit over alleged securities laws violations. According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges that the defendants allegedly failed to disclose that the reported growth in LHC Group's home-based healthcare segment between July 30, 2008 and October 26, 2011, was created, in large part, by LHC Group, Inc. engaging in a pattern of practice designed to achieve the most profitable number of therapy visits under the Medicare home health program, manipulating the number of patient visits, regardless of patient need, to maximize revenue.
Shortly after LHC Group, Inc agreed to a $65 million settlement over allegations that it overbooked patients for unneeded therapy to squeeze more money from Medicare between 2006 and 2008 the Senate Finance Committee issued a report “disclosing that the improper and illegal manipulation of the number of therapy visits provided to patients had continued even after the period covered by the settlement."
On October 29, 2013, NASDAQ:LHCG shares closed at $20.91 per share.
