ANCHORAGE (KTUU) A grand jury has accused an Anchorage woman of committing hundreds of thousands of dollars in Medicaid fraud.

Mee Chong Collins, 70, was a Medicaid provider in Anchorage from March 1, 2011, to August 10, 2015. During that time she knowingly filled out false timesheets claiming that her adult son and daughter provided personal care services to Medicaid recipients that Collins knew they didn’t, according to the indictment.

Collins charged Medicaid, a government-sponsored health care program for low-income Americans, for $320,336 for services that were never provided, according to the charging document.

State business records show Mee Chong Collins as the registered agent for a limited liability company called Sunshine Care Services. The records indicate the business was started in November 2012. The company is listed as “non-compliant” for failing to file required paperwork every two years.
