Maine house nurse convicted

A former Maine home health care business owner pleaded guilty in New Hampshire to providing false records for nursing services in response to an audit and was sentenced Tuesday to a year in prison, most of the time on probation.

Michael Maggiacomo, 52, of South Berwick, provided the false information to the New Hampshire Department for Health and Human Services between August 2018 and September 2020 in support of Medicaid’s claims to the services, the attorney general’s office said.

He received a 12-month sentence suspended up to 30 days probation.

A message has been sent to his lawyers for comment.

Maggiacomo was initially charged last year with Medicaid fraud and theft and providing false records.

A co-defendant filed a complaint on December 22 to plead guilty to unspecified charges.
