Janice Wright Holland, owner of A Caring Hand Home Health Care Services in Suffolk, Virginia, has been indicted on charges of Medicaid fraud. She is accused of defrauding the Medicaid program of $700,000. Ms. Holland faces a total of 34 counts, which include health care fraud, altering records, making false statements, and aggravated identity theft.
A Caring Hand Home Health Care Services provides respite care for caregivers of those who are seriously ill. When a person is too sick to be left alone, it can cause a tremendous strain on family members who provide care to the sick person. Respite care is one way to reduce that strain and provide a needed break for caregivers.
Unfortunately, according The Viginian-Pilot, from 2008 until 2011 Ms. Holland allegedly billed Medicaid for over $700,000 in home health care services she failed to provide.
