Halisi Staten, who owned and operated the Georgia Center for Health, Wellness & Recovery in Lithonia, and Kim Bray, who worked at the clinic, are accused of submitting thousands of fraudulent claims to Medicaid for services that were not provided or not entitled to reimbursement, according to their indictment.
The facility offers help with substance rehab and mental health, according to the website. Staten told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution she was unfamiliar with the charges against her before hanging up.
“I don’t know anything about that,” she said. “Goodbye. You have a good day.”
The third person in the state involved in the investigation is from south Georgia. Details about that case were not immediately available.
