WellCare Not a Victim: Court
An attempt to financially separate WellCare Health Plans from its convicted executives was rejected by a federal appeals court, the News Service of Florida reports.
The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled that WellCare is not entitled to seek restitution from former Chief Executive Officer Todd Farha, former Chief Financial Officer Paul Behrens and former Vice President William Kale. The trio were convicted of Medicaid fraud and sentenced last month.
The court said WellCare, in earlier court documents, had admitted to being a co-conspirator, the News Service reports.
