Williamsburg wellness center owner indicted in $2 million health care fraud case

Published

By

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A federal grand jury in Norfolk returned an indictment on Thursday charging a Williamsburg wellness center owner with defrauding Virginia Medicaid and other health care programs out of more than $2 million.

According to the indictment, 45-year-old Williamsburg resident Maria Kokolis was the owner of Pamisage Inc., a center for integrative behavioral health and medicine, with a focus on weight management issues.

Beginning in or about 2018, and continuing through February 2020, court documents say Kokolis executed a scheme to defraud and overbill various health care benefit programs and the Virginia Medical Assistance Program (Medicaid).

Paperwork says she was charging 45 minutes to an hour of face-to-face psychotherapy services for non-comparable services like sending messages through the company’s smartphone app or monitoring a client’s data.

Prosecutors say Kokolis billed these psychotherapy services for times when she was out of the country on vacation and when the clients were out of state or sick in the hospital.

According to the indictment, Kokolis used the names, Medicaid ID numbers, and other identifying information of her clients in submitting these false claims to the health care benefit programs. Kokolis received a total of at least $2,189,342 in fraudulent health care benefit program reimbursements, a portion of which came from the U.S. government, documents show.

Kokolis is charged with health care fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Linda Casias is bringing CBD products back to Los Alamos, starting noon May 8 when her new business Atomic City CBD Wellness opens its doors for the first time.

“Many people have come over from my former business, Float Los Alamos, where we sold CBD products,” Casias said. “These products were very popular. Customers are very happy to have a natural remedy for anxiety, stress and pain relief. CBD also helps with sleep problems.”

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in the hemp plant. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, which is a web of receptors in the nervous system, Casias explained adding that CBD is non-intoxicating and sometimes CBD is mixed up with THC—which will get you high—but they’re completely different compounds.

The 2018 Farm Bill made hemp (defined as having less than 0.3 percent THC) legal in the United States. CBD made from hemp is legally permitted in all states except Iowa, Idaho and South Dakota.

Casias offers a myriad of CBD products including:

  • Tinctures;
  • Gummies;
  • Honey;
  • Coffee and tea;
  • Creams; and
  • Capsules.

It’s not just about CBD. Casias also is featuring non-CBD candy and chocolate, bath bombs, greeting cards, stickers and fidget toys.

“I’m also displaying and selling my unique dots artwork,” Casias said. “My 10-year-old daughter is selling her own brand of slime called Izzy Slime. It’s not as sticky as commercial brands. I’m planning to add Los Alamos souvenirs and more gifts. Stop back, because I’m adding more items all the time.”

Atomic CBD Wellness is upstairs at 1247 Central Ave. Suite F, Room 219, directly above the Los Alamos Daily Post. Hours are noon to-6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Call the store at 505.709.7328, for more information.
