State rep's son charged with Medicaid fraud

Miami Herald: Gregory Campbell, the son of Democratic state Rep. Daphne Campbell, has been snared in a $299,000 Medicaid scheme, accused of fraudulently billing the agency for clients he didn’t provide any services for.

The charges include grand theft, organized fraud, and Medicaid fraud, all first-degree felonies.

Campbell, 28, allegedly billed Medicaid for the same recipients at two separate adult family care homes in Miami-Dade, and also billed for clients who never lived at either facility, according to the arrest affidavit filed in Miami-Dade court by the Florida Attorney General’s office.
