Virginia woman pleads guilty to Medicaid fraud

Compliance Monitor, May 28, 2008

Sharon M. Honeycutt, of Portsmouth, VA, pleaded guilty to healthcare fraud, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release.

Honeycutt owned and operated Ace Homecare, a Medicaid provider of durable medical equipment in Portsmouth. Under a Medicaid provider agreement, Ace Homecare received reimbursement from Medicaid for providing catheters, gloves, nutritional supplements, and adult diapers to Medicaid recipients with a physician’s written order. Between March 2003 and September 2005, Ace Homecare received reimbursement for items provided without a physician's order.

Honeycutt allegedly filed 1,500 false claims, totaling more than $101,000.
