A Las Vegas couple was indicted on May 19 and charged with $13 million in Medicaid fraud and money laundering.
Latisha Harron, 44, and her husband Timothy Harron, 50, worked together to scam the North Carolina Medicaid Program (NC Medicaid) by billing the government for fictitious home health services.
In 2010, Latisha created Agape Healthcare Systems and hid her felony conviction for identity theft to get the business enrolled as a Medicaid Provider.
Two years later, Latisha moved to Maryland, but she continued to bill Medicaid for services as though she was performing services in North Carolina.
In 2017, Latisha moved to Las Vegas and married Timothy Harron, who is also a convicted felon, in 2018.
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.
Peep the jet:
To add insult to injury, they flaunted their lavish lifestyle on social media.
