Las Vegas Couple Indicted in $13 Million Fraud Upon North Carolina Medicaid Program

On May 19, a federal grand jury for the Eastern District of North Carolina returned a Superseding Indictment charging Latisha Harron and Timothy Harron, a Las Vegas, NV couple, with numerous charges, including conspiracy to commit health care fraud and wire fraud, health care fraud, wire fraud, false statements relating to health care matters, aggravated identity theft, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and conducting transactions in criminally derived property with fraud and money laundering. According to the indictment, the couple carried out massive fraud upon the North Carolina Medicaid Program by billing the government for fictitious home health services.  They then worked together to launder the proceeds of the fraud into, among other things, a private jet, luxury jewelry and clothing, and properties in Ahoskie and Rich Square, North Carolina.
