Owner of NJ Home Health Aide Company Arrested

New Jersey authorities have arrested the owner of a home health aide agency for allegedly billing Medicaid for services that were never rendered.

Laurie Provost (NJ Attorney General’s Office)

The state Attorney General’s office says 53-year-old Laurie Provost of Sea Girt faces seven counts including health care claims fraud and Medicaid fraud.

A spokeswoman for The Attorney General’s office says they have not been advised whether Provost has retained an attorney.

Acting Attorney General John Hoffman says Provost engaged in fraudulent billing at her business, Home Care Solutions in Cranford.

Prosecutors say that from 2011 to the present, Provost allegedly submitted numerous fraudulent claims to Medicaid or to managed care organizations for services that were not provided, including services Provost claimed were provided to patients who investigators found to be hospitalized or on vacation.
