MultiCare Admits Fraud Committed By Its Employees

Anyone following this case knows the central allegations revolve around MultiCare Vice President of Revenue Cycle Jason Adams and other MultiCare employees endorsing the Washington State notary license application of Hunter Donaldson employee Rebecca Rohlke. These endorsements were a legal requirement for obtaining a notary license, and the MultiCare employees provided them despite knowing that Rohlke provided false information on her application. Particularly, Rohlke, a California resident, claimed she lived at a Gig Harbor address that actually belonged to Adams. Rohlke and Hunter Donaldson then used her fraudulently obtained notary license to file over five thousand medical service liens on MultiCare’s behalf, seeking to collect millions of dollars from the victims of sudden and traumatic injuries with these tainted and invalid liens.
