The Idaho department of health and welfare is hoping to recover what they have characterized as overpayment to the seasons of hope mental health care facility .what we know is that the state is investigating this company and their practices, what we haven’t had however is an official response from those who are facing allegations. I spoke to Dr. Heath Sommers about this situation and i have his words.

In order to show how familiar he is with proper procedures, Dr. Heath Sommers  said, “I previously managed one of the regional mental health programs for the department of health and welfare, as did some of my staff behind me again, life is a learning process and we are fine with learning but to say that we intentionally defrauded the government is outrageous to us it just doesn’t seem to be the way that our society is supposed to function.”

One of the main concerns for the Idaho department of health and welfare is that of concerns involving paperwork, however Dr. Sommers refutes all claims of poorly crafted documents and assured everyone that he as well as his staff is well seasoned in proper policies and procedures

Sommers added that, “To allege fraud that we purposely attempted to defraud the government is just extremely unbelievable to us and I can tell you that I know that people who work for me that I manage and they are the most ethical people that I’ve met and that’s why they work for me, so it’s mind-boggling, we don’t have a good explanation for it, we don’t hate the department but we bet it to be reasonable and give us due process.”

We will follow this story as it develops in the coming 28 days; the amount of time those seasons of hope has to respond to recent allegations. In Pocatello, I’m Dave Martinson KPVI news 6.
