Rationale for Reasonable Suspicion of Program Violation:
The Department of Children and Families suspended all Wisconsin Shares payments to the provider based on a reasonable suspicion that the provider violated provisions of the Wisconsin Shares program. The suspension was based upon a combination of red flags indicating a likelihood of Shares violations and the following findings from the Department’s investigation including but not limited to: 1) the provider’s failure to maintain and submit accurate attendance records as required by the Shares program and 2) the provider’s failure to comply with the statutes, promulgated rules, or policies of the Wisconsin Shares program.
The Department has evidence that the provider
- Billed for children who were not in attendance.
- Billed for more hours than children actually attended.
- Billed for children who did not appear on the attendance records.
- Billed for more children than the provider’s licensed capacity permitted:
- Between January 2011 and February 2011 at location 003: the provider reported and billed 48-55 children were in attendance at the same time, licensed capacity was 27.
- Between March 2011 and April 2011 at location 004: the provider reported and billed 31-48 children were in attendance at the same time, licensed capacity was 27.
