Post 42 Indicted In California Medicaid Fraud Scheme 
Prosecutor: 42 indicted in Medicaid fraud case
Posted: 05:15 PM ET
(CNN) — Agents arrested 20 people Thursday on a 42-defendant indictment alleging a California Medicaid fraud ring bilked the state out of nearly $4.6 million and put the lives of disabled children at risk, a prosecutor said.

The defendants are accused of either posing as licensed nurses or organizing the scheme of sending the unlicensed nurses to provide home- or school-based care to disabled patients, many of them children with cerebral palsy or another developmental disability, the office of the U.S. attorney for central California said in a written statement.

The long defendant’s list makes the case the largest of Medicaid fraud in California, U.S. Attorney Thomas O’Brien said in the statement.

Each defendant has been charged with conspiracy to commit health care fraud and at least one count of health care fraud, according to the statement.
