Nursing Home Administrator Pleaded Guilty to $2.2 Million Theft from Medicaid

A former nursing home administrator agreed to serve prison time last week for defrauding Medicaid out of $2.2 million and failing to pay taxes. The former administrator pleaded guilty to second-degree grand larceny and third-degree criminal tax fraud.

The sentencing is scheduled for December 6th. At that time, the state Attorney General's Office, says it will recommend that the woman serve three years in state prison.  According the the Attorney General's office, the woman exaggerated the diagnoses and conditions of patients at Glen Island Center, and lied about treatment they received so the nursing home would get larger Medicaid reimbursements.

The woman also made money from two health care companies that she claimed to operate but which did not actually exist. In 2008 alone, the fake companies made more than $307,000, giving her a tax liability of more than $31,000, which was never paid. For more, read the story.
