A lady who operated at an assisted living home in Clawson deals with numerous scams and other charges after state district attorneys say she embezzled payments from the home’s citizens and aimed to cover it up with over $600,000 in phony Medicaid billings.
State Attorney General Bill Schuette stated in a release the suspect, Juliana Trzin, 40, of Hamtramck, operated at the Cambridge North Healthcare Center, 535 N. Main St. in Clawson when the declared criminal offenses took place over 5 years, ending in 2016.
” Medicaid is developed to be there for households when they need it the most,” Schuette stated. “Those who take from Medicaid are taking from Michigan’s most clingy households.”.
Charges were submitted versus Trzin recently in East Lansing’s 54B District Court and another charge of cocaine belongings was included Tuesday. Authorities stated she had the drug at the time of her arrest.
Trzin is set to be arraigned in the East Lansing court Monday on an overall of 12 charges.
Clawson cops notified the Attorney General’s workplace of the presumed scams after Cambridge assisted living home submitted a report with Clawson detectives about the believed criminal activities.
Trizn operated at Cambridge North Healthcare Center as a medical biller, district attorneys stated.
A problem from the assisted living home declared money payments made to the center on behalf of locals were not being participated in the center’s receivables journal.
District attorneys stated that follow-up examination showed up proof that Trzin– who was accountable for getting payments on behalf of clients– apparently kept that money.
Trzin is implicated of incorrectly billing Medicaid over $600,000 to cover the missing money payments and avoid earlier detection of the scams plan, authorities stated.
The suspect deals with the following charges:
– Six counts of Medicaid scams, each a four-year felony;
– Three counts of incorrect pretenses, each a four-year felony;
– A count of embezzling from a susceptible grownup, a misdemeanor;
– A count of continuing a criminal business, a 20-year felony;
– Cocaine belongings, a four-year felony.
