Dickson center under health care probe, says report
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Dickson County drug rehabilitation center is reported to be under investigation about whether officials filed false claims for TennCare recipients.
The Tennessean cited a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing by CRC Health Group, the owner of New Life Lodge, in reporting the state attorney general has demanded records from the center.
The filing also states the U.S. Department of Justice is participating in the state probe.
U.S. Attorney Jerry Martin said his office does not confirm or deny investigations are taking place. The newspaper reported TennCare officials and the state attorney general did not respond to requests for comment.
The state shut down New Life from November 2011 to April 2012. It was once the largest residential rehabilitation facility in the state.
