Burtonsville Man Charged with Medicaid Fraud

BALTIMORE, MD ( February 18, 2010) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Neil Wayne Goldschmitt, 60, of the 4400 block of Meanderwood Drive, Burtonsville, was charged in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City with one count of felony Medicaid fraud for fraudulently billing the Medicaid and Medicare programs for wheelchairs that he never provided.

Goldschmitt, owner of Gold Medical Corp., is scheduled to appear in court on March 15, 2010. Felony Medicaid fraud is punishable by five years in prison and a $100,000 fine. The case was investigated by Attorney General Gansler’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit in conjunction with the Office of the Inspector General of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the United States Office of Personnel Management and the Maryland State Police.

A criminal information is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and a defendant is presumed innocent until the State proves the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
