Special Education School in California Subject to State Whistleblower Complaint

Universal Health Services, one of the nation’s largest healthcare management companies, is embroiled in a suit pending in Sacramento County, California related to allegations brought by private whistleblowers under California’s False Claims Act that the company bilked the state of public money through special education schools the company owns.   According to the allegations, brought by former employees and a student, UHS-owned schools in California, including UHS Keystone-Sacramento and a former Elmira campus in Solano, allegedly falsified records, charged the state for absent students, understaffed classrooms, and employed uncertified teachers while receiving public education funding.  The plaintiffs’ attorney was quoted as saying: “They were warehousing the kids and not providing sufficient education.  They make a lot of money by charging all this money for educational services. I think it’s a nationwide scam.”
