Affirming an earlier state order, an administrative law judge said a medical-supplies and personal-care-assistance company should repay $135,214 in state funds for improperly-billed wages and services, according to a decision made public this month..
 
In early 2007, the state Department of Human Services audited the records of 14 clients of Healthworks Home Medical Inc. and Healthworks PCA, Inc.
 
In many cases Healthworks failed to provide documentation supporting claims made during a six-month period. Timesheets also showed that Healthworks submitted wage claims for two employees actually working other jobs, one at a school district, the other at a bank.
 
In 2010, Whistleblower reported how a man was left without an oxygen supplier after Healthworks suddenly went out of business.
