Parsippany man charged with lying to get charity care December 11, 2008

This case isn’t too exciting.  The guy will get PTI.  However, I’d like to know how they caught him.  Who knew that they looked into charity care applications?

Shlomo Cohen, 58, of Parsippany, was charged by a state grand jury with health care claims fraud and theft by deception, both in the third degree.

Between Aug. 16 and Sept. 26, 2005, Cohen received treatment at Morristown Memorial Hospital for a medical condition and filed an application for coverage under the New Jersey Hospital Care Payment Assistance Program, also known as Charity Care.

The indictment alleges that Cohen lied on his application in order to receive Charity Care benefits covering his full medical costs of $36,570.
