BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Attorney General’s Office says eight people have been arrested after it was discovered that a personal care services company conspired with its Medicaid recipients to allegedly steal Medicaid dollars.

The attorney general says the Donaldsonville-based licensed Medicaid provider, Majestic Home Care Services, LLC, owned by Latesha Taylor and operated jointly with her mother, Martha Taylor, repeatedly billed Louisiana’s Medicaid program for services not actually rendered to Medicaid recipients.

Prosecutors alleged Majestic employed supervisors and direct service workers, including other members of the Taylor family, who struck deals with Medicaid patients.

In one instance, The AG’s office says the Medicaid program paid in excess of $100,000 over a three year period for services not rendered.

It was unclear whether those arrested have attorneys.
