WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Federal authorities accused a licensed therapist of billing millions of dollars in a healthcare fraud scheme.
45-year-old Maria Kokolis entered a plea of not guilty in federal court Friday.
The Williamsburg Wellness Center owner and licensed counselor is accused of defrauding over $2 million during a two-year period.
Prosecutors accuse her of billing for face-to-face services at times when she was out of the country or when clients were sick or out of state. They say on 332 separate occasions, she allegedly billed for services that exceeded 24 hours in a single day.
