Registered nurse guilty for stealing over $390,000 from Medicaid


WHITE PLAINS – A private duty nurse pled guilty in Westchester County Court to felony grand larceny for stealing over $390,000 from Medicaid.

An investigation by the state Attorney General’s Office found that over the course of some five years, Collins Anyanwu-Mueller, 47, submitted false claims for private duty nursing services that he never provided to two severely disabled patients.  When sentenced next February, he will receive one year in jail and agreed to pay $392,954 in restitution.

“The Medicaid home care program is meant to provide severely disabled New Yorkers with the care they need,” said Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. “Fraudsters who rip off this vital program by using it as a personal piggy bank will be caught and prosecuted.”
