In sworn statements supporting those search warrants, Mary Ann Withrow, a special agent with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, wrote that Golden Heart had violated federal law by hiring felons banned from working in the homes of patients who qualify for in-home care under the Aged and Disabled Waiver Program.
Golden Heart also might have failed to provide mandatory training for its in-home care providers, known as "homemakers," and falsified records to make it appear that it had, Withrow noted.

In a sworn affidavit accompanying the search warrants, Mary Ann Withrow, a special agent with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, wrote that Golden Heart has violated federal law by hiring felons banned from working in the homes of patients who qualify for in-home care under the Aged and Disabled Waiver Program.
"Interviews conducted during the investigation of complaints against Golden Heart established that Golden Heart was not performing required criminal investigation background checks, was employing homemakers with significant criminal histories, was paying some employees 'under the table' and outside of the Golden Heart payroll system, and was not providing mandatory training or verification of prior experience, training, certifications or licenses," Withrow wrote.
The government is also investigating claims that Golden Heart did not provide mandatory training for its in-home care providers, known as "homemakers," and falsified records to make it appear that it had, according to Withrow.
If Golden Heart billed Medicaid for improperly certified homemakers, or for homemakers who were barred from employment due to violent felony convictions, as alleged in Withrow's affidavit, the company could face charges of health-care fraud.
Between October 2006 and February 2010, Golden Heart billed West Virginia Medicaid more than $2.3 million for health-care services and almost $357,000 for transportation services, although it is not possible to tell from Withrow's affidavit how much of those figures might be called into question.
In one instance cited by Withrow, Golden Heart submitted claims for care provided for a patient, identified only by the initials L.K, in August, September and November 2007, although L.K. passed away in May 2007.
In another, the state Bureau of Senior Services received a complaint that a Golden Heart homemaker was exploiting two elderly patients who were siblings, Withrow wrote.
