According to the Georgia Attorney General's Office, two people have been charged with stealing more than $977,000 from Georgia Medicaid between July 2013 and end August 2014. Criminal charges are serious in nature and should be treated as such, but health care fraud allegations have the potential to shut down the accused's place of business in addition to affecting their professional reputation. Sometimes accusations are the result of misunderstanding a business model or sometimes the case can be something else. Whatever the situation, when charges are pressed, consulting an experienced attorney can help prevent the case from going any further.
One of the accused owned and operated an athletics company and the other owned and operated a health services company with branches in various locations in Georgia. Allegedly, both these companies were enrolled in Medicaid and were supposedly providing services and charging them to the Georgia Medicaid program.
