Provider of housing for the disabled to pay state $500,000 for Medicaid fraud

Living Sans Frontieres Inc., which provides housing and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, agreed to pay the state $500,000 for charging Medicaid for services it did not provide.

Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh announced the settlement with the Woodlawn-based nonprofit Tuesday.

An investigation found that Living Sans Frontieres didn’t have enough staff to provide adequate services for a patient under its care but still billed Medicaid for providing those services.

Frosh said in a statement that the nonprofit cheated the state.

“More importantly, they cheated some of our most vulnerable citizens who depend upon those services,” the statement said. “This conduct violates our law and our duty to developmentally disabled members of our community.”

Living Sans Frontieres could not be reached for comment.
