When there are multiple investigations happening during your divorce case, things can get very tricky very quickly. A couple were running a pediatric dental facility in Jacksonville, FL. The practice has been under investigation for Medicaid fraud. At least $4 million in payments may have been fraudulently made. On top of that, the doctor is accused of harming the children who came to his practice.
Now the wife is asking for a divorce, claiming her husband has blocked access to the accounts and dissipated the funds. But the man’s attorney says that he is spending the money on responding to patients who are requesting records after the clinic shut down. The office is under at least three separate investigations. And there is a twist too. The wife was the office manager at the clinic for years and handled all the Medicaid filing. She could potentially be on the hook for fraud.
The abuse case has gotten so much attention that CNN’s Anderson Cooper recently did a story on it. Fair warning: it is graphic and disturbing.
