New York City Employee Pleads Guilty In Manhattan Federal Court To Million-Dollar Medicaid Fraud
Preet Bharara, United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced today that AKIM MURRAY, an employee of the Medicaid Reimbursement Unit of the New York City Human Resources Administration ("HRA"), pled guilty before U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman to a Medicaid fraud scheme in which MURRAY, whose job involved issuing reimbursements for Medicaid-eligible expenses, manipulated the system in order to have over one million dollars' worth of checks issued to his friends and criminal associates. Those co-conspirators, in turn, gave MURRAY a substantial cut of the proceeds.
