A skilled nursing facility in Andover, New Jersey will pay $888,000 to both state and federal government to resolve allegations it provided substandard or "worthless" services to some patients, the Department of Justice announced Wednesday.

Andover Subacute and Rehab Center Services Two has agreed to pay $395,508 to the United States and an additional $492,492 to New York State, and will enter into a Corporate Integrity Agreement with DHHS Office of the Inspector General to ensure quality, accountability and other compliance issues.

According to the DOJ, from July 1, 2010, to Dec. 31, 2012 Andover billed New York State's Medicaid program for "materially substandard or worthless nursing services" that were rendered to certain patients. Those services didn't meet federal standards of care.

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of New Jersey and the Justice Department's Civil Division, as well as the New York State Attorney General's Office.
