NJ Health Agency Operator Denies Cheating Medicaid

The operator of a home health aide agency in Cranford, N.J., is denying charges she submitted phony bills to Medicaid and organizations serving Medicaid patients.

Laurie Provost (NJ Attorney General’s Office)

Fifty-three-year-old Laurie Provost of Sea Girt appeared in court Wednesday on eight fraud counts stemming from billings submitted by Home Care Solutions from 2011 through this year.

Her attorney, Douglas Anton, said she denies any wrongdoing.  He says a recently fired agency employee made up a “false tale of misdeeds by my client.”

Anton also disputes the state’s characterization of Provost as an owner of Home Care Solutions. He says she was in charge of operations but was not an owner.

The state says a 2010 Medicaid provider application by Home Care Solutions stated she had an ownership interest.
