Southern Maine Woman Charged with Embezzlement from a Health Care Benefit Program

According to court records, from December 2015 to June 2017, Caporino was employed as the office manager for a Falmouth physician.  The complaint affidavit alleges that she took about 600 checks totaling about $250,000 payable to the physician or the practice, and deposited them into her personal bank accounts, instead of the practice’s bank account.

She faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  It was part of the Department of Justice’s (DOJs’) Health Care Fraud Takedown announced today by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, M.D., which is the largest health care fraud enforcement action in DOJ’s history.

A criminal complaint is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
