Florence Bikundi and her husband Michael D. Bikundi Sr., owners of home care agency Global Healthcare Inc., were sentenced to prison for 10 years and 7 years, respectively, for health care fraud, money laundering, and other charges stemming from a scheme in which they and others defrauded the District of Columbia Medicaid program of over $80 million. They were also ordered to forfeit over $11 million seized from 76 bank accounts; their $1 million residence; $73,000 in cash seized from their residence and five luxury vehicles. The court also imposed a forfeiture money judgment of roughly $40 million and ordered them to pay roughly $80 million in restitution to D.C. Medicaid. The government’s evidence showed the Bikundis led a scheme to bill Medicaid for services that were not fully provided, recruiting others, including family members, into the scam and creating fraudulent paperwork to hide the illegal activity.
