4 Philadelphia business owners charged in $10M Medicaid fraud


Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro charged four Philadelphia business owners June 14 in connection to a $10 million Medicaid scam, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Owners of three care coordination agencies allegedly conspired with a transportation company to bill Medicaid for $7.9 million in services from 2017-19 that were never provided to beneficiaries. Two of the companies, Brighter Care Services and Pennsylvania Service Coordination Agency, were accused of defrauding Medicaid an additional $2 million by charging for more services than were provided, the article said.

Other charges brought against the owners were theft by deception, criminal conspiracy and tampering with public records. All four surrendered to law enforcement June 14, according to the article.
