JOHNSTON, Iowa (AP) - A nursing facility chain in Iowa that was accused of submitting inaccurate cost reports for Medicaid payments will pay more than $415,000 as part of a settlement.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the southern and northern districts of Iowa said in a news release Thursday that Signature Care Centers, LLC, and its seven related nursing facilities in Iowa have agreed to pay the money to resolve civil allegations involving Medicaid overpayments for the 2008 and 2010 fiscal years.

The agreement includes no admission of liability or wrongdoing. Messages left for Signature Care Centers were not immediately returned Thursday.

The seven related nursing facilities are Gowrie Care Center, Lake Park Care Center, Perry Health Care Center, Primghar Rehabilitation and Care Center, Rosewood Manor, Woodlands Rehabilitation Center and Sutherland Care Center.
