Massachusetts Attorney General Andrea Joy Campbell announced a $940,000 settlement resolving allegations that Northeast Health Services caused fraudulent claims to be submitted to MassHealth by failing to ensure that certain clinicians received appropriate supervision from a licensed clinician.

According to a press release issued by the attorney general’s office, MassHealth pays for mental health services provided to its members by qualified clinicians and counselors. Those professionals are subject to certain licensure and supervision requirements and mental health centers employing those who render mental health services must comply with core supervision requirements set out in applicable regulations. Northeast, a Taunton-based company, and its former owners, Robert A. Conway and Wallace W. Varonko, have agreed to pay the settlement to resolve the claims.
