MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A home health care company has agreed to pay $150,000 to resolve claims that it billed Medicare for services that were not eligible for reimbursement.

U.S. Attorney's spokeswoman Bertha Moore says Techota LLC. billed Medicare for services that were either unnecessary or that weren't provided under valid health care plans.

Officials say the company will enter into a corporate integrity agreement with the Office of the Inspector General and the Department of Health and Human Services.

U.S. Attorney's officials say the resolution is part of a federal push to curb health care fraud, and the Justice Department has recovered $14 billion in false claims cases since 2009.
