70-year-old Anchorage woman accused of illegally obtaining more than $330K in Medicaid funds

Federal prosecutors announced Thursday a 70-year-old Anchorage woman has been charged with illegally obtaining $337,149 in Medicaid funds over four years.

Mee Chong Collins submitted numerous fraudulent timesheets from February 2009 to June 2013, claiming her family members provided personal health care attendant services to four Medicaid recipients, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Alaska. She faces a single count of health care fraud.

The grand jury indictment against Collins says the services were never provided.

An initial court date for Collins has not yet been set by the court, prosecutors said.

4. This happens more than one thinks.

With all the Budget cuts that the Rethugs have placed on Health and Human Services,the first to go were the Investigators and Auditors,gee what could go wrong with that outcome. This is just the tip of the fraud Iceberg.

5. The heading is a tad misleading. This woman provided services to medicaid recipients, or

pretended to provide services. She wasn't the one receiving the care that Medicaid provided, she just milked the system.
There's a big difference.
