More than 400 people have been charged in a massive health care fraud and opioid scam totaling more than $1.3 billion.
This is considered one of the country’s largest health care fraud cases ever.
Three people from Michigan have been charged.
Dr. Najah Roumayah, from West Bloomfield, Dr. David Dickey, from Camden, and Marie Denard, from Macomb, are all charged with Medicaid fraud-false claim.
The Attorney General’s Health Care Fraud Division says 412 people have now been charged.
They include doctors, dentists, pharmacists and more health care providers in the Medicaid program.
The charges span 41 federal districts.
The alleged fraud was uncovered using ‘data-mining,’ an investigative process that involves examining a large amount of information from a database.
