A staffing manager collaborated with the owner of A Caring Hand Home Health Care Services, Inc. (A Caring Hand) to hide Medicaid fraud.  Between January of 2008 and October of 2011 the owner of A Caring Hand submitted about 900 fraudulent Medicaid claims for payment for services provided to 30 Medicaid recipients.  The Medicaid recipients never received those services and around $630,000 was fraudulently obtained by the owner of A Caring Hand.  The staffing manager and other staff members falsified office records at A Caring Hand to cover up the fraud between September 2010 and October 6 of 2011.  The staffing manager was sentenced and the owner of A Caring Hand will be sentenced in January of 2013.
