Homeward Bound Services Lawsuit

$249,000 settlement in elder care fraud lawsuit.

Homeward Bound Services

Delaware County, PA: (Aug-23-07) Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett and his office brought a lawsuit against Homeward Bound Services, alleging that the Delaware County-based health care company defrauded hundreds of elderly customers. The suit claimed that Homeward Bound deliberately deceived elderly Pennsylvanians living on a fixed income by selling them a product they believed would keep them from entering a nursing home or assisted living facility. It said that the company conned seniors into purchasing a non-medical, home health care service program by claiming it was a long-term-care insurance policy. Corbett said that it was appalling to believe that a company could prey on the fears of some of the most vulnerable citizens to line its own pockets.

In a settlement reached, Homeward Bound Services and its affiliates have agreed to pay $249,000 to Corbett's elder-abuse unit. Earlier this month, New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo sued the company and obtained a restraining order to prevent it from selling its health plans there. Cuomo said the company entered into agreements with more than 600 New York seniors and didn't deliver on its promises. [PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS: ELDER CARE FRAUD]
