NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgan & Morgan announces that it is investigating possible claims against the Board of Directors of Chemed Corporation ("Chemed") (NYSE: CHE) relating to alleged violations of the False Claims Act.
The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a lawsuit in May of 2013 against Chemed and its affiliates alleging that Chemed defrauded Medicare by knowingly submitting false Medicare claims for hospice services that were either unnecessary, were not provided, or were provided to ineligible patients. Our investigation seeks to determine if the Chemed Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders in connection with the alleged violations cited by the DOJ.
If you own shares of Chemed and would like more information about the Chemed investigation, please contact George Pressly, Esq. at 1(800) 631-6234 or email George at AskGeorge@morgansecuritieslaw.com.
