Filipinos in Alaska charged with Medicaid fraud

Filipinos in Alaska guilty of Medicaid fraud are being fined up to $1.5 million dollars in penalties and damages.

Owners and employees of Good Faith Service have entered a guilty plea in connection to charges of Medicaid fraud.

They are now being asked by the government to pay fines and restitution. Authorities say the company billed Medicaid for services they did not provide to patients.

In July last year, criminal charges were filed against 25 Anchorage-based personal care attendants and Medicaid recipients, as part of an ongoing state and federal Medicaid fraud investigation.

Investigation showed ten employees billed Medicaid over one million dollars for services they claimed they provided elsewhere – when they were actually in their office.

One of the company’s owners, 55-year-old Agnes Francisco, pleaded guilty to attempted medical assistance fraud – a felony.

She faces up to five years imprisonment and a $50,000 dollar fine.

    Medicaid fraud are the biggest racket by Pinoy caregivers in Alaska.The State of Alaska does not care about the racket, because they have so much money and very generous to Pinoys being hard worker and one of the few ethnicity who want this kind of job. This racket has been going on for a long,long years, until a Pinoy whistle blower reported their activity to FBI. A typical Pinoy crab mentality, he does not want a fellow Pinoy to succeed and over take him when it comes to money and riches.
