Owner of Virginia company sentenced for $2.8M Medicaid fraud

A Texas woman was sentenced Monday to 50 months in prison for defrauding the Virginia Medicaid program out of $2.8 million.

“For over six years, the defendant stole over $2.8 million from the Virginia Medicaid program, using those funds to go on a spending spree at casinos, luxury retail stores, and foreign travel destinations,” said Raj Parekh, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “This prosecution underscores our steadfast commitment to protecting essential government resources that are intended to help those in need of this critical assistance throughout our communities.”
