(Malvern) The Omaha World Herald is reporting this morning that two southwest Iowa care facilities have been appointed a receiver to guarantee the government gets their money. An Iowa Judge granted the state’s request.
The state alleges that Faith Ridge Life Center of Malvern and Kevington Lane in Sidney owe the Iowa Department of Human Services hundreds of thousands of dollars in Medicaid funds.
The two facilities were also ordered to disclose all of their property and liabilities and ordered them to not transfer any property.
Faith Ridge is a 51-bed nursing home, and Kevington Lane is a 21-bed facility, serving those that need a lower level care than a nursing home. Both care facilities are owned by Mary Morse-Bolton, of Plattsmouth, Nebraska.
Iowa has already suspended Medicaid payments to the two facilities.
