One of the Options......

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Metro & Tri-State :: The mother of all judgments: $334 million

Amerigroup Illinois and Amerigroup Corp was paid by Illinois to provide medicaid. The company turned in by their Vice President, Cleveland A. Tyson, would avoid insuring "unhealthies" and third trimester pregnant women. AmeriGroup was doing was this with dollars paid to them by Federal Government to take care of the poor. According to the charges, AmeriGroup used this money to line their own pockets. These people were trusted with taking care of the poor and decided to save money instead by denying services to those who needed it the most. I hope the government is taking notes. Who's to say how many other organizations are committing fraud?
