Troy Brown’s troubles continue

Staff Report
State Senator Troy Brown

     The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals has launched several investigations into a personal care company owned by State Senator Troy Brown.

     Brown's companies are being investigated for billing issues, allegations of Medicaid fraud and allegedly violations of client care standards.

     The Louisiana Attorney General is overseeing multiple of his cases, one of which involves one of his caregivers, Sheron Parker.

     Parker was arrested in 2009 on seven accounts of Medicaid fraud while she was employed at Home-Health PCA, a company owned by Brown. She pleaded guilty to theft, though continued to work for Brown.

     In 2015, the senator was sanctioned by the DHH to pay back $38,609.27 after the department was made aware that Parker still worked for him.

     According to WWL-TV, there are 27 separate investigations into Brown's companies by the DHH, though no healthcare related convictions have been made.
