TALLAHASSEE (FLV) –  Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody announced a nurse and mother of a Medicaid recipient were arrested for stealing more than $100,000 from Medicaid. 

Myoka Bowens, a licensed practical nurse, worked with a Medicaid recipient’s mother, Jazmin Raulerson, to falsify progress notes for time overseeing a high-risk infant. 

“Not only did these women scheme to rip off Florida taxpayers, but they also exploited an infant’s illness in the process,” Moody said.

The high-risk infant received private duty nursing services where daily notes would be submitted. Bowens faked skilled progress notes for reimbursement. Raulerson would sign and approve the notes. Raulerson received several thousands of dollars from Bowens for taking part in the scheme.

“I am proud of the work of my Medicaid Fraud Control Unit to uncover their plot to steal more than $100,000 from this taxpayer-funded program and bring these suspects to justice.”

The company, Sonas, fired Bowens after the company hired a private investigator. Both Bowens and Raulerson each face one count of Medicaid provider fraud, which is a first-degree felony. 

Moody’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit will prosecute the case.
