Sioux Falls diocese settles charges of Medicare/Medicaid fraud

Catholic World News - September 02, 2011

The Diocese of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, has agreed to pay $90,000 to settle charges of false Medicare and Medicaid billing by its Catholic Family Services counseling program.

The diocese did not admit any criminal activity in the settlement, but conceded that “mistakes in billing resulted in about $34,000 in overpayments.”

A former employee at the counseling program, Diane Cogley, will receive a $15,000 reward for filing a whistleblower complaint.
