While juggling a number of other scandals, newly sworn-in Louisiana state Sen. Troy Brown is now answering questions about his long history of Medicaid fraud investigations that have led to more than $90,000 in fines, according to WWLTV.com.
Brown has been investigated 27 times by the state Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) for violating standards of care, improper billing and Medicaid fraud, the article says. Six cases against several of Brown's personal care companies have been referred to the Louisiana Attorney General. In the last 11 years, Brown has received four fines from DHH totaling $91,000. In 2009, a personal care attendant employed by Brown was arrested on seven counts of Medicaid fraud. Article
