A Kenyan lady in the US has been embroiled in a Sh10 billion trick involving money from the country's medical services program.
Winnie Waruru, 41, and her co-plotter Faith Newton were on Monday prosecuted on what was termed as a scheme to commit medical care extortion, paying and getting payoffs, illegal tax avoidance and offering untrue details.
As per court records, Newton was part proprietor and administrator of Arbor Homecare Services. Waruru was a Licensed Practical Nurse filling in as a home healthcare worker at Arbor.
It is claimed that Newton and Waruru plotted to utilize Arbor to dupe health care coverage suppliers MassHealth and Medicare of an amount adding to Sh10 billion by getting involved in medical services fraud and paying kickbacks to fake references.
In particular, it is affirmed that Arbor, through Newton and others, neglected to prepare staff, charged for home healthcare services that were not even given or were not therapeutically important and charged for services that were not approved.
