The Harrons worked together to scam the North Carolina Medicaid Program (NC Medicaid) by billing the government for fictitious home health services.
Together, they scoured the North Carolina obituaries and ran information about the deceased through a Medicaid eligibility tool.
If the deceased had Medicaid, the Harrons would use their identity and eligibility to back-bill NC Medicaid for services they never provided.
Between 2017 and 2019, the Harrons racked up $10 million!
The indictment claims the couple laundered the money into luxury homes, a private jet, Tiffany & Co. jewelry, expensive clothes, gym equipment, an Aston Martin, a wine collection, business properties, and more.
Latisha Harron was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison and three years of supervised release on May 18, 2021.
She was also ordered to pay $300 in special assessments.
On September 3, Timothy Harron was sentenced to 12 years in federal prison and ordered to pay $4,321,590.39 in restitution to the North Carolina Medicaid Program.
He will also have to forfeit $13,396,921.64 in cash, a British Aerospace Bae 125-800A Aircraft, a 2017 Aston Martin DB 11 sports car; a 2016 Ford F-150 Super-Crew pickup truck; real property held in the name of Assured Healthcare Systems in Hertford County, North Carolina; as well as various other items of designer jewelry and luxury items seized from the defendant’s penthouse condominium in Las Vegas.
