Health and wellness organizations in the US have been hit by claims of fraud and negligence by AmitaHealth, a home health agency, and John M. Muir Health, a pediatric hospital.
The agencies said that their websites, email and phone numbers were being used to commit fraud.
They said their billing records were being altered and falsified.
“We were never told that we were in the process of receiving a claim or that we would receive any money,” said Amitahealth spokeswoman Anna V. Wysocki in an email.
“We were told that the claims were in process.
We have not received the claim or received any funds.”
John Muir health spokesperson Sarah E. Stilwell told the Wall Street Journal that the agency has been contacted by more than 60 people who claim to have received a claim.
The agency said that it was also receiving calls from people claiming that their claims were canceled.
Stilwell said that the medical community is working with the FDA to verify the claims and to ensure that the people receiving them are eligible.
The FDA told the Journal that it does not verify claims by consumers.
The Wall Street Review reached out to Amita, John Muirs Health and Amita’s attorneys for comment.
In a statement, John M Muir, the chairman and CEO of Amita told the WSJ that it is “deeply concerned” about the allegations and that “our team is working diligently to address the matter and ensure that all of our processes are in place.”
The Wall St. Journal contacted John Muiri Health, which has a business relationship with Amita.
A spokesperson for John Muira Health did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the allegations.
