A Chicago-based home health provider is suing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), along with a contractor hired by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Simply Home Healthcare LLC claims the contractor, AdvanceMed, wrongly continued a suspension of Medicare payments following a rebuttal letter from the provider. Simply Home Healthcare LLC also claims the contractor computed past debt to Medicare based on a faulty documentation error rate it had calculated. Before going out of business in 2018, Simply Home Healthcare LLC served about 150 patients daily in 10 counties in the Chicago area, plaintiff and former owner Robert Kunio told Home Health Care News in an email. Meanwhile, AdvanceMed is one of five unified program integrity contractors (UPICs) nationwide hired by CMS to audit and investigate home health agencies for potential fraud. According to a class-action complaint filed in the U.S.
District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on April 5, AdvanceMed allegedly suspended Medicare reimbursements to Simply Home Healthcare LLC in 2017 because of overpayment-related issues. Later, the reason for the suspension was changed to fraud without proper support, the home health agency claims. Months later, AdvanceMed lifted the suspension. 5.4 million to Medicare. 4.8 million, according to the lawsuit. This “alleged debt” put the company out of business, Simply Home Healthcare LLC claims. In its complaint, Simply Home Healthcare LLC argues that AdvanceMed misapplied federal laws and regulations “for the sole purpose of inflating billable hours and winning additional contracts” in the process. “In the war on Medicare fraud — which I support — there have been many victims of this collateral damage at the hands of these UPICs,” Kunio said. Neither HHS nor AdvanceMed responded to HHCN’s request for comment by the time of publication.
Earlier this year, Laura Long — the Medicare operations lead at AdvanceMed — told attendees at the 2019 Illinois HomeCare & Hospice Council (IHHC) leadership conference that agencies can file inaccurate claims unintentionally. Additionally, she explained that UPICs like AdvanceMed can extrapolate their findings when appropriate. “If we review 30 claims, and we find that 25 of those have been overpaid, then we can extrapolate those results across the entire universe, whatever that defined universe was,” Long said. Kunio told HHCN that he believes other home health and hospice agencies have experienced similar issues. 1 billion in direct and punitive damages, he maintains. Simply Home Healthcare LLC is represented by Michael J. Raiz and Lesley R. Arca of Jurisprudence Health Law Group PC and George S. Bellas of Bellas & Wachowski.
Violet I am God’s work in progress. I am many things, but I wear no labels. My proudest accomplishment is the rearing of two lovely and accomplished daughters, who have collectively bore me three grandsons. I believe life is good no matter what, and everything is as it should be. My faith is strong that I am living God’s plan for my life, although at times I do not like the plan. I continue to do the footwork, no matter how clumsily, and leave the results to the Universe. Professionally, I have a total of 20 years in the field of home healthcare nursing and five years as a counselor working with troubled teens. I attended Central Piedmont Community College for Practical Nursing and graduated in 1974. In 1994 I graduated from UNC-Charlotte with a BA in African and African-American Studies and a minor in Anthropology. In 2002 I again graduated from UNC-Charlotte with a MA in Counseling. I am licensed as a practical nurse in the states of NC and GA. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Licensed Professional Counselor in NC. I currently reside in GA and hope to return to NC in 2012 to open a private counseling and coaching practice.

OnSeen, Inc. announced today that it has entered into an agreement with ViaQuest, Inc. to license and implement LiveCare, OnSeen’s mobile workforce management solution for the home healthcare industry. ViaQuest delivers innovative healthcare and support services to people at their residences in order to improve their living conditions and quality of life. Delivering services at a consumer’s residence, however, pose many unique challenges to providers like ViaQuest. These challenges are compounded by the fact that there are many, disconnected parties involved in the care delivery process, including the care-receiving consumer, their family members, the in-home care providers and the provider’s home office administrative and management staff.
Not surprisingly, the current processes generate a mountain of emails, texts, voicemails, forms, hardcopy files and manual ledgers. And real-time communication and document sharing between the participants in the process is difficult. The inevitable result is an inefficient and expensive care delivery process, and uninformed and frustrated consumers and guardians. “Our administrative processes prior to LiveCare were mostly manual and less efficient than we wanted. At the same time, communications with and visibility to our in-house caregiver activities were inherently delayed and restricted,” said Rich Johnson, CEO of ViaQuest. LiveCare seamlessly connects in real-time all of the parties involved in the home healthcare process through an affordable, easy-to-use, mobile-web platform.
“The principal objective of our LiveCare Solution is to help home healthcare providers deliver quality service and a positive experience to their consumers.” said Randy Smith, President of OnSeen. OnSeen is a Mobile Workforce Management (MWM) solution. Its command and control platform for mobile workforces and teams helps organizations coordinate their people, places, and things. The OnSeen mobile team solution connects all the stakeholders involved in a remote field process (e.g. home office management, field staff or contractors, customers, partners). With OnSeen, managers can dispatch, monitor, and task their remote team members, provide real-time status updates to all stakeholders with a vested interest in the process, and facilitate tightly integrated collaboration across their remote teams.
OnSeen currently serves the insurance, government, and transportation sectors. The common thread among clients in these verticals is a need for a tool that provides real-time situational awareness, resource allocation, intelligent routing, workforce collaboration and communication for their inherently mobile teams. Founded in 1999 by CEO Rich Johnson, ViaQuest has grown from a single division in Ohio to serving individuals throughout Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania. The name ViaQuest represents the overall mission of the company: a group of people on a mission (or Quest) to change the way (Via) health care services are delivered. Through a wide range of innovative services referred to as ViaQuest’s Circle of Care, their skilled, dedicated employees ensure that the people they serve are active participants in their own care. ViaQuest offers quality, highly-personalized, specialized and cost-effective care, solutions and services.
