Medicaid Fraud or  “Non -Compliance” ?

The Ulster County Medicaid Office / DSS was hit with a 6 million Dollar Fine on a Medicaid Fraud, Waste and Abuse claim. Had a Whistleblower from inside that office retained a Whistleblower attorney and was the first to report the alleged fraud, they could be the one to collect up to 25% of that fine, or 1.5 million dollars.
