BRUNSWICK, Ga. (Legal Newsline) – Three Georgia corporations are alleged to have submitted false Medicaid claims.

United States of America and State of Georgia filed a complaint on June 27 in the U.S. District Court Southern District of Georgia, Brunswick Division against Miracle Home Care Inc., Miracle Adult Day Care Inc., Miracle Transportation, Shashicka Tyre-Hill and Darlene Jackson citing the False Claims Act and the Georgia False Medicaid Claims Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that between Jan. 1, 2012, and Jan. 29, 2018, they paid defendants for non-emergency transportation and adult day health services that were not rendered. The plaintiffs allege the defendants submitted falsified documents.

The plaintiffs hold Miracle Home Care Inc., Miracle Adult Day Care Inc., Miracle Transportation, Tyre-Hill and Jackson responsible because the defendants allegedly knowingly submitted fraudulent claims for payment in violation of the Acts.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek all damages suffered and all legal fees. They are represented by Bobby L. Christine and Jonathan A. Porter of U.S. Attorney's Office in Savannah, Georgia and Christopher M. Carr and James P. Mooney of Office of the Attorney General in Atlanta, Georgia.
