Cases of Medicaid fraud

Three Florida men were charged with fraud for trying to bilk Medicaid out of $121,000. Arnaldo Iglesias, Jorge Fernandez-Romero and Alain Fernandez billed Medicaid for medical products not prescribed by physicians. If convicted, the three face serious jail time. In an unrelated case, Boris Gokhman--a Milwaukee-based housing developer--has been charged $5,000 for each of 18 false Medicaid claims he made. Gokhman falsely claimed he was taking care of his elderly parents for 650 days and billed Medicaid for the services of Cares R Us Home Health Care Agency. He will also receive a $7,500 fine and one year of probation. Better luck next time guys.
