Princeton Social Worker Accused Of $1.7M In Medicaid Fraud

PRINCETON, NJ — A mental health provider in Princeton improperly billed and was paid more than $1.7 million in Medicaid funds, according to an audit report released by the New Jersey Office of the State Comptroller (OSC).

The OSC is seeking full repayment from Sokkyun Yi, a Princeton-based licensed social worker who provides intensive in-community mental health services in New Jersey.

As part of its oversight of the New Jersey Medicaid program, OSC’s Medicaid Fraud Division conducted an audit of claims submitted by and paid to Yi from Sept. 21, 2016 through March 2, 2020, for services provided by Yi and others with whom he had contracts.

Yi does business under the name Family First Counseling Services.

The OSC’s audit found that around 54 percent of the 963 claims reviewed contained inaccuracies.
