U.S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty II said Tuesday that Support Solutions Inc. improperly billed Medicare and MaineCare programs in 2006 and 2007.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ The U.S. Attorney's Office says a Maine nonprofit organization has agreed to pay nearly $75,000 to settle claims of improper billing to Medicare and MaineCare programs.

U.S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty II said Tuesday that Support Solutions Inc. improperly billed the health care programs in 2006 and 2007 for services provided by a program manager who had been excluded from participating in federal health care programs.

Delahanty says Support Solutions was in violation of the federal False Claims Act for sending bills for services rendered by a prohibited person.

Support Solutions has offices in Lewiston and Saco and provides services to adults with development disabilities.

Officials say the organization terminated the program manager upon learning of the government's investigation.
