MINNESOTA — Thirteen Minnesota residents were charged in a $5.4 million health care fraud conspiracy case on Friday after prosecutors said that the group attempted to defraud the Medicaid program by submitting fraudulent claims, the acting U.S. Attorney for Minnesota announced.

The allegations were detailed in two indictments that were announced Friday and the 13 people are charged in the scheme, acting U.S. Attorney W. Anders Folk said in a news release. The scheme, Folk said, involves mental health practitioners and interpreters who were associated with Live Better, LLC, which has offices in Minneapolis and Roseville, and the Multicultural Counseling Clinic, which has offices in St. Paul, Brooklyn Park and Burnsville, according to a release issued by Folk’s office.
