10 Convicted and Sentenced in Medicaid Fraud

Posted:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP)- Ten former employees of a counseling business have been convicted and sentenced for their roles in a scheme to defraud the Virginia Medicaid program.
    
The Department of Justice tells media outlets the sentences of the 10 employees from Progressive Counseling Services, LLC range from 41 months to 108 months in prison.
    
According to court records, the defendants submitted false claims for mental health support services in order to obtain reimbursement payments from the Virginia Medicaid Assistance Program in 2011 and 2012.
    
Court records state the employees created fraudulent assessments of the business' clients to obtain authorization to bill Medicaid for mental health support services. Once the business obtained authorization, false Medicaid reimbursement claims were submitted on behalf of the mental health support service.
    
The employees were convicted on various charges.
