Koster settles with Smith & Associates Home Care

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster reached an agreement Wednesday with Smith & Associates Home Care, an in-home personal care service company in Hayti.

The settlement resolves allegations that Smith & Associates failed to ensure services were properly delivered to its Medicaid clients.

Chrystal Abernathy, a Smith & Associates employee, plead guilty in May to not providing services to a client. That client happened to be her ex-mother-in-law.

The company will pay the state seventy-four-thousand dollars in restitution, damages, and investigation costs.
