Two Miami-Dade Women Arrested for Medicaid Fraud

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.-Attorney General Pam Bondi's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the Miami-Dade Police Department today arrested Mildred Lucia Madrid, 51, and Maritza Isabel Alvarez, 47, for allegedly defrauding the Florida Medicaid program out of more than $38,000. According to the investigation, Madrid and Alvarez falsified documents to Medicaid stating that Alvarez was the caregiver of Madrid's son and that Alvarez performed more hours of service than actually rendered. Madrid and Alvarez allegedly concealed the fact that they were sisters, which would prohibit payment to Alvarez.
