An Atlanta man who scammed HIV patients so he could defraud Georgia’s Medicaid program for a $300,000 booty now faces a stark reality: Serving three years of a 15-year prison sentence and paying restitution of $284,000.
George Boyd, who ran Northwest Ministry, was sentenced on Dec. 28 after pleading guilty in DeKalb County Superior Court, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Boyd claimed that between June 2005 and November 2009, he was providing case management services to HIV patients in DeKalb County, which included getting HIV sufferers to needed medical, social, nutritional and education services.
Prosecutors said Boyd didn’t provide any of those services. Instead, he used HIV patients’ Social Security numbers and personal information to bill Medicaid for services he did not provide.
