Union Welfare Fund Settles Action For False Claims For Charging Higher Insurance Premiums
The US Attorney for the Southern District of New York settled false claims against the Local 95 Head Start Employees Welfare Fund for charging a Head Start program more for medical insurance than it had paid for the insurance. The fund administered medical insurance for employees working for agencies that maintain Head Start programs. The Union fund agreed to pay $5 million to settle the claims and, as part of the settlement, acknowledged that it overbilled the government for the insurance.
