I Am Not A Citizen, Can I Be Deported for Medicaid Fraud?
We all know of the typical case of Medicaid Fraud Investigation...but there is one consequence that is rarely spoken about.
Someone receiving benefits gets a letter.This letter is from 250 Church Street stating they are under Medicaid Fraud investigation and are to appear for a Medicaid Fraud interview. Many people fear that they will have to pay back large sums of money that they don't have or will be arrested when they appear for an interview. However, what many people do not realize is that there is another consequence of Medicaid Fraud investigation. It's deportation.
Medicaid fraud is a criminal offense.If found guilty, someone who is a non-citizen can be deported. Stealing of over ten thousand dollars is considered an aggravated felony, and along with deportation, one may never be allowed back into the United States. If deportation is not an issue, but criminal charges are filed, it will go on your record and will show up every time you apply for a job.
