MSP, feds raid West Branch healthcare business

Posted

WEST BRANCH — The Michigan State Police and the Office of Inspector General, the law enforcement division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, conducted a raid Wednesday morning on a business in West Branch.

Unity Home Health Care, its owners’ house and a storage unit were raided at approximately 8:45 a.m. after a federal judge authorized the search warrant, according to MSP Det. Sgt. Craig Johnson.

Johnson said it was a result of a collaborative investigation of the business and its owners that has been ongoing for a couple years, involving the MSP and the Office of Inspector General. He said the investigation continues and will likely take a while.

Johnson said a “tremendous amount” of items were seized, including medical and billing records.

“The focus of our investigation is to determine if the healthcare company is billing appropriately,” he said.

He said if there is enough probable cause to justify a federal indictment, that will happen next.
