NORFOLK, Virginia (AP) — A home health-care business operator and his wife have been indicted in a Medicaid billing scheme.

A federal grand jury in Norfolk on Wednesday indicted 54-year-old W. Wayne Perry Jr., and 51-year-old Angela Perry of Suffolk. Each face one count of health-care fraud, 24 counts of making false statements related to health-care matters, four counts of aggravated identity theft and one count of alteration of records.

The indictment says over a nearly four-year period, the Perrys submitted nearly 6,500 fraudulent claims to the Virginia Medicaid program and received $1.3 million in payments. The couple is accused of altering office records to conceal the payments.

Also facing one count of alteration of records is Allison Hunter-Evans. She was an employee of the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Development Services.
