Sixth Cause of Action for Fraud

National promised and represented to XYZ, Novacare and others that its facility was “organized, staffed, and operated in a manner which routinely met the individualized care needs of residents,” particularly including resident patients referred by discharge planners at XYZ Community Hospital. The promise (and representation) was in a so-called “Provider Agreement” between XYZ and Novacare and National.

National also made promises in writing in the form of an annually application for renewal of the license issued by the state to National, that it would comply with all relevant state laws, especially those pertaining to patient safety and quality of care. Promises were also made in plans of correction formulated on a HCFA 2567 form. Each promise was authorized and ratified by each defendant.
