Seven Area Individuals Accused of Medicare Fraud

Seven people are under arrest and accused of Medicare fraud, after the county executive's office says the individuals used forged prescriptions and paid with Medicaid funds.

In a release, the County Executive's Office says the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General referred the names of these people who were known for presenting forged prescriptions for various controlled substances to Binghamton area pharmacies.

All seven face class D felony charges of possession of a forged instrument. Each individual will appear in Binghamton City Court at a later date.
