Minnesota attorney general charges 8 in scheme that cheated Medicaid out of $860,000

The Minnesota Attorney General’s Office has charged eight people with perpetrating a long-running fraud scheme that cost the state’s Medicaid program more than $860,000.

Investigators allege in charges filed this week that the ringleader of the five-year swindling operation was Trenea D. Davis of Brooklyn Center.

Davis, 46, admitted to authorities that she recruited friends and relatives to feign or exaggerate medical conditions to qualify them for personal care assistant (PCA) services, according to the 11 felony counts filed against her in Hennepin County District Court, which span from January 2015 to March 2020.
