Florida AG Medicaid Fraud Investigation

The Florida Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit found that, between January 2000 and May 2004, Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) submitted claims to the State of Florida Medicaid program in violation of the Florida False Claims Act. The AG found that CCA, which provides health care services to inmates at facilities throughout Florida, improperly billed Medicaid for outside medical services provided to inmates. Pursuant to a civil settlement agreement with the state, CCA paid $298,115, which covered the improper Medicaid claims, the cost of the state’s investigation and a penalty.
