FL Attorney General arrests two executives for $2.75 million in Medicaid fraud

Medicaid Fraud BadgeFlorida Attorney General Pam Bondi announced today that the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit has made two arrests. With the assistance of the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, CEO Maxcine Darville and Assistant CEO Joanne Carter of the Council on Aging of Florida were arrested for using more than $2.75 million of Medicaid dollars for excessive salaries and personal expenses.

Bondi’s office released the following statement:

The Attorney General’s Office investigated the women for allegations that between January 2006 and March 2012 the two used Medicaid program payments to the Council on Aging of Florida to cover excessive salaries and personal expenses, such as mortgage payments, Internet service, utility bills, cell phone service, and personal long distance calls. The Council on Aging of Florida is a nursing home management company, and it is not affiliated with the Florida Council on Aging.

“We will not allow those who are entrusted with providing legitimate Medicaid services and accurately billing the program to exploit the system,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. “We will continue to protect taxpayers’ dollars by investigating and prosecuting those who commit Medicaid fraud.”

Darville and Carter are each charged with one count of organized scheme to defraud, a first-degree felony. If convicted, Darville and Carter each face up to 30 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. Attorney General Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution will prosecute the case.

    My name and the email address is incorrect (do not want spams)

    Just as per the article I do not see any issue or wrong doing. $2.75 millions in terms of Salary and Benefits (such as internet, cell phone) for two executive for 6 years is common that is approximately $200K per year per person. I do not know what is the going salary/ benefits for such position in florida but this article failed to provide many facts such as revenue of the company. If they are guilty they should be finished but if the case do not have merits then we just destroyed a family even if they walkout free.

      I meant " they are guilty they should be finished " as " they are guilty they should be punished"
