Feds target Virginia Firm that Allegedly Defrauded Medicaid for D.C.
Federal authorities have begun a criminal investigation of Maximus Inc. in the wake of a lawsuit claiming that the Reston, Virginia-based consulting giant overcharged the government tens of millions of dollars while working for the District of Columbia’s foster care agency, according to a story in today’s Washington Times.
The investigation follows a federal False Claims Act lawsuit filed in 2003 alleging that Maximus lacked proper documentation for most of the more than $30 million in Medicaid claims the company prepared for the D.C. government, starting in 1999. The suit was filed by Benjamin Turner, a fired Maximus employee who claims that the Medicaid billing was “grounded in fraud.”
