DC Attorney General sues health care agency for defrauding Medicaid

D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine announced a lawsuit March 8 against a home health care provider for defrauding the District’s Medicaid program of more than $3 million from 2012 to 2014, in part by preying on people experiencing homelessness.

The Office of the Attorney General alleges the provider, Vizion One, engaged in a scheme of submitting false claims for at-home care that was not necessary, properly authorized or provided.

Vizion One employees recruited recipients by canvassing outside homeless shelters and social service agencies, including D.C. Department of Human Services processing centers and the Department on Disability Services’ offices. Agents bribed District residents to falsely claim a need for care, according to the press release.
