In a significant court decision, Alfonzo Bailey, a 40-year-old resident of Euclid, Ohio, has been handed a 36-month prison sentence by U.S. District Judge Pamela A. Barker, Your Content has learned.

Bailey pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud charge.

The court also ordered him to serve 3 years of supervised release, pay a $100 special assessment, and make restitution of $3,465,643.33.

According to court records and details presented during the sentencing hearing, Bailey established Eye for Change Youth and Family Services in 2016, providing vital services such as mental health counseling, case management, job training, and supportive housing.

However, starting in 2017, Bailey colluded with accomplices to orchestrate an elaborate scheme aimed at defrauding The Ohio Department of Medicaid by submitting false claims.

Bailey coerced his staff into fabricating progress notes for counseling sessions that never occurred, all to secure fraudulent reimbursements from the Ohio Department of Medicaid.

Following the execution of search warrants at Eye for Change Youth and Family Services in 2020, 21 defendants, including Bailey, were indicted.

This extensive investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Cleveland, in collaboration with the Department of Health and Human Services – Office of the Inspector General (HHS-OIG) and the Ohio Attorney General’s Healthcare Fraud Section.

The prosecution team comprised Assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael Collyer and Edward Brydle, along with Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Metzler, according United States Attorney’s Office.
