FBI investigating multi-million dollar Medicaid scheme, one charged has ties to Lexington facility

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A multi-million dollar Medicaid fraud investigation has led to a federal indictment.

Two people were arrested and charged for their role in the North Carolina scheme. Donald Booker, of Charlotte, and Delores Jordan, of Kentucky, were both named.

A federal indictment in North Carolina accuses the two of defrauding Medicaid out of millions of dollars.

According to the indictment, Jordan and co-conspirators recruited Medicaid-eligible beneficiaries for housing and other programs that were tied back to Booker and Jordan.

Once enrolled in a program, investigators say that recruiters told them they were required to submit urine samples for drug testing. Those samples were reportedly submitted to a lab owned by Booker.

Investigators say those samples were medically unnecessary and this was part of a scheme that involved millions of dollars. It led to the arrests of Booker and Jordan last week.
