Raleigh CEO sentenced to more than 6 years in prison for health care fraud

A Raleigh CEO was sentenced Thursday to more than six and a half years in prison for health care fraud.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Tanya Grant, 51, was investigated for a health care fraud scheme she carried out between 2017 and 2021 through two companies she controlled – Carolina Rehab Products (CRP), also known as Atlantic Brace, at 6900 Six Forks Road in Raleigh; and Blue File, at 1204 North Ellis Ave. in Dunn.

In total, Grant caused CRP and Blue File to bill Medicare for more than $50 million in durable medical equipment (DME) between 2014 and 2021, of which Medicare paid Grant more than $17 million.

Grant used these funds to purchase a home in Raleigh, a townhome in Florida, a Porsche, several Range Rovers, several Jeeps, a boat, jewelry, art and electronics, as well as amassing more than a million dollars in cash and investments, according to the Justice Department.
