MONTEREY PARK, Calif., Dec. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "EHS Medical Group condemns the alleged improper actions and conduct by SynerMed and its leadership for alleged systematic denial of care which posed serious threats to the health and safety of our patients. EHS wants to make it perfectly clear we were unaware of any of these deceitful and deceptive practices.
When EHS became aware of the allegations of widespread deficiencies at SynerMed, it immediately terminated its contract with the firm. To EHS's knowledge, the deficiencies specifically pertained to SynerMed altering dates on documents and denials letters being sent untimely.
EHS is appalled to think that any of our patients may have been denied or delayed care due to the reprehensible conduct by SynerMed. Furthermore we find it shameful that SynerMed took blatant steps to falsify documents to hide their abhorrent conduct which included fabrication of denial letters without supervision from physicians. EHS is conducting its own investigation as well as assisting the State in its investigations.
We are fully committed to helping with the investigation and maintaining quality healthcare to the patients who were victims of SynerMed's wrongdoing.
The physicians in our medical group remain committed to providing the highest quality healthcare to our patients and are dedicated to ensuring we deliver efficient, cost-effective care that is personalized to the needs of our members."
