Allegations of unethical and illegal behavior by CSC
US Government charges CSC, along with New York City, with Medicaid fraud, says Corporate Crime Reporter
Federal prosecutors allege two fraudulent schemes involved CSC and New York City using computer programs to circumvent the requirement that Medicaid should be billed after private insurance coverage had been exhausted. A third fraudulent scheme involved the use of a defaulting to systematically falsify diagnosis codes submitted to Medicaid.
Federal officials alleged that these fraud schemes caused the submission of tens of thousands of false claims to Medicaid and allowed New York City, through CSC, to improperly to obtain millions of dollars of Medicaid reimbursements.
