Feds announce $17M settlement with health care firm in W.Va.

Federal prosecutors say they've reached a $17 million settlement with a health care company accused of Medicaid fraud in West Virginia

Stuart says Acadia, though its subsidiary CRC Health, billed Medicaid for $8.5 million in marked-up costs for blood and urine tests that weren't done at its drug treatment centers and instead performed by a lab in California.

He says the company has also agreed to implement a risk assessment program and hire an independent organization to review its Medicaid claims.

Acadia didn't immediately respond to a voicemail seeking comment.
