Four Home Healthcare Workers Charges with Defrauding Medicaid
St. Louis, MO - Two area home health care workers entered guilty pleas this week for billing Medicaid for home healthcare services that were not provided, while three other individuals were indicted with similar Medicaid home healthcare fraud charges. The charges include a home health care worker billing Medicaid when she was actually taking the bar examination in Jefferson City, Missouri, to become a lawyer. Another home health care worker billed Medicaid when his patient was actually in Florida; another home care worker billed Medicaid the day after she was discharged from the hospital after giving birth to a newborn baby and another home health care worker billed Medicaid for taking care of her husband.
