Community Care Incorporated, the non-for profit health care organization, is currently being investigated for possible fraud with their Medicaid billing.

The organization gets most of its funds from the Medicaid program. Federal regulations require all payments be temporarily suspended during the investigation and with that, CCI would have to close down. But the board of directors was able to make a deal.

David Pillers, Vice President of the organization's Board of Directors says in order to keep all of their facilities up and running the board had no choice but to fire their management team. That's including the C-E-O, C-O-O, C-F-O and The Director of Human Resources.

"It was very difficult for us to do. We've had a long standing relationship and we considered them to be very qualified employees, and management staff working closely with those. So it's always a difficult decision to terminate people," he said.

Community Care provides health care services to the disabled in-homes, and facilities in several Eastern Iowa Counties, but its main administration office is based in Dewitt. The news has people in the small town wondering about the impact.

"Yes, it's shocking. I mean there are a lot of people working. The paychecks come in to our community," said Don Ron of Dewitt, IA.

The Community Care Board of Directors has been able to keep operations going by also bringing in an outside management consulting company. They don't know how long the investigation will take, but they hope to keep services up and running in the meantime.
