Virginia women indicted for Medicaid fraud

Compliance Monitor, April 30, 2008

A federal grand jury indicted Annette Fleming-McClatchey, of Woodbridge, VA, on 24 counts of healthcare fraud connection with a scheme to defraud the Virginia Medicaid program, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release.
 
Fleming-McClatchey, who owned and operated a medical supply company, allegedly caused false claim forms to be submitted to Medicaid for medical equipment or supplies which were either never provided to Medicaid recipients or were provided in a lesser quantity than billed between 2004 and 2007. Medicare’s losses from the scheme total more than $3.7 million, according to the DOJ.
 
Fleming-McClatchey faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, three years supervised release, a fine of $250,000, and full restitution if convicted of all charges.
