Minnesota's Advance Home Health facility indicted for Medicaid fraud

Compliance Monitor, November 11, 2009

A federal court indicted the owner and two personal care assistants of Minnesota’s Advance Home Health for fraudulently billing Medicaid for over $89,000 according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release.
 
Owner, Patrick Daniel Osei, 49, and his two employees, Crecida Marie Cade, 47, and Sabrin Marie Peterson, 38, allegedly submitted false claims to the Minnesota Department of Human Services for unrendered in-home personal care to Medicaid beneficiaries. The defendants also delivered payments to Medicaid recipients in exchange for allowing Advance to bill for personal care attendant (PCA) services that Advance never provided.
