BALTIMORE (Legal Newsline) — Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh has announced the Center for Social Change Inc. will pay $331,000 after allegations the nonprofit organization received payments from Maryland’s Medicaid program for staffing it did not provide to group homes for individuals with development disabilities.

Center for Social Change provides community housing and support services to people with developmental disabilities. Staffing is based on need, while the Developmental Disabilities Administration administers payment.

According to Frosh’s office, the nonprofit organization understaffed 15 of 30 homes it operated, yet accepted payments for full staffing from the Administration.

 

Medicaid fraud control unit director Ilene J. Nathan, assistant attorney general Jennifer S. Forsythe, auditor Carol Kelly and investigator Valerie Puig handled the case. The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Office of the Inspector General provided assistance.
