TennCare requires that a placement evaluation be conducted and certified by a physician for each patient entering a nursing home. This settlement resolves allegations by the United States and the State of Tennessee that during the period of January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2017, THM submitted pre-admission evaluations with photocopied or pre-signed physician signatures on the required certifications for claims rendered to TennCare beneficiaries at its associated Tennessee skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities. THM operates 27 skilled nursing facilities in the State of Tennessee.
