Eleven indicted in alleged $6.1 million Medicaid scheme

Compliance Monitor, July 2, 2008

Three suspects were arrested June 10 for their involvement in an alleged multi-million dollar scheme to defraud the Texas Medicaid program, according to a release from Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. Following those arrests, seven other co-conspirators voluntarily surrendered themselves to authorities, while one suspect remains at large.
 
Dyain Eligha Frazier and Tajuana Krischell Frazier, owners of Frazier Medical Marketing, a medical billing company based in Humble, TX, were arrested at a luxury automobile dealership in Houston, where the couple attempted to trade in a 2006 Bentley for a new Mercedes-Benz and cash, the release states.
 
The Fraziers are alleged to have worked with eight durable medical equipment companies to bill the Texas Medicaid program for supplies that were never delivered to recipients.
 
The DOJ uncovered the scheme in 2006 when the Texas Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU) investigated 32 businesses suspected of fraud, according to the release.
