Nursing Home Operator Guilty of Defrauding Medicaid

After an investigation, a nursing home operator plead guilty to fraudulent activity in the operation of six nursing homes. The charges included fraudulent cost reports submitted to the Medicaid program for items listed at all six nursing facilities.

State authorities and the prosecution worked together to uncover the fraud against the Medicaid program and the elderly residents that cannot afford nursing home services.

The operator accepted a plea deal which will require him cooperate with the ongoing investigation, to pay restitution and to be banned from the Medicaid program for life. The owner will also be prevented from owning or managing a nursing home facility. In addition to his plea deal, the nursing home operator will serve out probation terms. For more, read the story.
