According to the Georgia Attorney General, Oluyemisi and Olufemi Afuape, a Snellville couple, were indicted on one count of Medicaid fraud and one count of conspiracy to defraud the State.
Oluyemisi is a licensed physical therapist, while her husband, Olufemi, is her business partner. They co-owned and operated Zion Rehab, as well as a daycare business called “Give Mom a Break.”
They are accused of exploiting underprivileged children.
The couple allegedly offered free daycare to local, needy families, then submitted claims to the Georgia Medicaid program for charges that were not provided, like physical, occupational and speech therapy services.
The amount they received totaled over $1.4 million.
The couple could spend up to ten years in prison and pay a fine of $10,000.
