Minnesota AG Ellison brings charges in Faribault area Medicaid fraud scheme

(St. Paul, MN)  —  Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is charging eight people who are linked to an alleged scheme to defraud the state’s Medicaid program out of two-point-six million dollars.  

He says the defendants used the stolen identities of hundreds of people, who are mostly from the Faribault area, to charge Medicaid for services the victims did not receive.  

They are charged with several felonies including racketeering, and identity theft.  

The charges come about five months after Ellison brought charges in another Medicaid fraud case, which involved close to eleven million dollars in billing
