Medicare fraud charges for son of Florida Representative

Gregory Campbell, the son of Representative Daphne Campbell, has been charged with fraudulently billing the government for nearly $300,000 worth of services that were not provided. Medicare fraud has received increased government attention in recent years as they attempt to address spiraling costs. The charges renewed interest in claims that Representative Campbell and her husband engaged in questionable practices while running nine adult care homes before she ran for office.

The charges against the younger Campbell stem from work he did with an adult care home owner in Miami. The two allegedly conspired to double bill the Medicare system for some services, while also billing the government for patients who never actually stayed at the home. If convicted, he faces hefty fines and time spent in prison.

The Medicare Fraud Control unit conducted a two-year investigation before filing the charges. Such investigations have increased dramatically as claims of Medicare fraud have become rampant. Florida is known as a hot bed for Medicare fraud. The state has been the site of many high profile arrests for health care fraud.

Daphne Campbell's record first drew attention when several patients died in suspicious circumstances. The state cancelled their contract with the homes owned by Campbell's company, leading to her withdrawal from the field. She was later accused of defrauding several business partners as part of an aborted plan to re-enter the adult care home industry.
