Unlicensed Massachusetts Nurse Pleads Guilty to Role in $4.6M Medicaid Fraud Scheme

An unlicensed nurse from Marlborough, Mass., has pleaded guilty to her role in a $4.6 million Medicaid fraud scheme that operated out of California, according to a MetroWest Daily News report.

Fe Filart admitted to providing medical services to California Medicaid patients, including children with cerebral palsy, without being licensed from 2004 to 2007, according to the report.

Ms. Filart is one of 42 people that were indicted by a federal grand jury as part of a larger Medicaid fraud case involving a registered nurse, who hired unlicensed nurses to provide medical care to disabled patients but billed Medicaid as if they were licensed, according to the report.

Ms. Filart has been scheduled to appear in court for sentencing on Jan. 24.
