Attorney General Pruitt Charges Father and Son with Medicaid Fraud
OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s Medicaid Fraud Unit has filed charges in Oklahoma County against Olaoye “Felix” Faboro, 59, of Oklahoma City, and his son Abayomi Temitope Faboro, 28, of Norman.
The charge alleges that between July 2010 and July 2011, Felix Faboro, a licensed professional counselor (LPC) for YouthCare of Oklahoma, billed the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) a total of $25,984 in fraudulent claims for counseling services to three children from one family. Additionally, the state claims he knowingly possessed and submitted to OHCA forged Mental Health Services Plans in order to continue providing the alleged services to the children.
The charge alleges that Abayomi Temitope Faboro, a behavioral health rehabilitation specialist with YouthCare of Oklahoma, also fraudulently claimed to provide counseling services to the same children. He received $8,924 from OHCA.
During an investigation by the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, the children’s mother stated “Felix” eventually provided counseling to her eldest child, but only greeted the other children. The mother had no knowledge of Abayomi Faboro and he was unable to describe the family’s home or provide the address to investigators.
The Medicaid Fraud Control Unit is the only Oklahoma law enforcement agency dedicated to the investigation and prosecution of Medicaid fraud. The Unit helps raise awareness as well as investigates and prosecutes provider fraud and abuse of residents in Medicaid funded nursing homes.
