Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester man has been sentenced to five years probation in a Medicaid fraud case.

55-year-old Hamdi Aden has also been ordered to pay more than $80,000 in restitution and perform 200 hours of community work service for his conviction on a felony theft charge. He pleaded guilty in May of this year through a plea agreement that led to the dismissal of four other felony theft charges.

Aden was accused of submitting fraudulent Medicaid claims through his business between October 2014 and February 2016. The name of his company was Shiffo Home Health Care and the claims involved services for personal care assistance provided by a person who is not qualified as well as claims for PCA services that were not ever provided.
