Eight charged with bilking state Medicaid program

One defendant allegedly billed for services for dead patient

Eight people are facing charges that they defrauded the state’s MassHealth program of approximately $260,000 by falsely billing for personal care attendant services that were not provided, the attorney general’s office announced today.

In one case, the person who was supposed to be providing care was allegedly incarcerated at the time services were supposedly provided. In another instance, the personal care attendant was allegedly out of state, traveling extensively, and working another job. In a third instance, the program was charged for services for a person who was dead, the attorney general’s office said.
