According to a lawsuit filed in South Florida federal court, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, one of the nation’s largest suppliers of AIDS and HIV medical care, is accused of bilking Medicare and Medicaid in a $20 million scheme spanning twelve states. The suit, filed by three former managers at the foundation, alleges the company paid employees and patients kickbacks for patient referrals in an effort to boost funding from federal health programs. According to the lawsuit, kickbacks began in 2010 at the foundation’s California headquarters, and proceeded to spread to Florida and other states.
