Colorado telemedicine company owner accused of Medicare fraud

The owner of a telehealth company has been charged with submitting Medicaid claims for services that were never provided. 

Renee Fasano, 46, of Pueblo, Colo., owner of Southern Colorado Telehealth, is accused of taking the Medicaid billing information for patients seen at Castillo Primary Care, where she previously worked as a biller, and using that information to submit fraudulent bills to Medicaid and stating that the patients had also been seen at her company, according to an Oct. 28 news release from the Colorado Attorney General's Office. 

The alleged fraud occurred between March 3 and April 12, 2020, according to the release. Ms. Fasano allegedly received $577,935.82 in fraudulent Medicaid reimbursements.
