BOSTON (Legal Newsline) — Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey announced March 30 that Elena Kurbatzky, owner of Harmony Home Health Care LLC and operator of an alleged $2.7 million Medicaid fraud scheme has been indicted on new accounts.
According to allegations, Kurbatzky was first charged with False Claims violations related to her role in allegedly stealing about $2.7 million from the state’s Medicaid program, MassHealth. Harmony Home Health Care, which Kurbatzky owned, purportedly routinely billed MassHealth for services that were never provided to patients.
Kurbatzky is charged by a Suffolk County grand jury of uttering false or forged records. Kurbatzky purportedly submitted documents to the Suffolk County Superior Court Criminal Clerk’s Office that she knew to be false. These false documents alleged the charge against her had been dismissed by the Supreme Judicial Court.
Handling the case for Massachusetts are assistant attorneys general Jennifer Goldstein and Kevin Lownds and investigator Christine Baker of Healey’s Medicaid Fraud Division. The Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Healey's office are assisting, as is the victim witness advocate Amber Anderson of the attorney general's Victim Services Division, the Office of the Inspector General, and MassHealth.
