Legacy Home Health Gets Back to Work Amid FBI Investigation

CORPUS CHRISTI - Workers and clients of the Legacy Home Health Center trickled back into the complex today. That's after FBI agents, personnel with the Medicare-Medicade Fraud Unit and the Department of Home and Health Services swarmed the complex Wednesday morning.

While current and former employees of the adult day care company said they had no doubts the joint investigation had something to do with Medicare fraud, investigators have yet to comment on the reason behind their search.

Thursday morning, friend to the owner and current employee at Legacy Home and Health Center, Robert Danesi, said he didn't deny that federal agents were likely there for a valid reason but testified to the character of the owner of Legacy Home Health Center.

He said if there was, in fact, something illegal happening at the center, it was not at the direction of the owner.
