UPDATE: Federal agents raid Jackson medical business

Anesthesia Business Consultants in Jackson.

JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS)–  Workers at a medical business in Jackson were greeted by federal agents Wednesday morning.

Investigators arrived at Anesthesia Business Consultants, located at 255 W Michigan Ave. around 9 a.m.

The business handles anesthesia billing claims for Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies.

Assistant Special Agent in Charge Joseph Napolitano said 10 computer forensic examiners and 20 agents from Detroit, New York and Philadelphia were on the scene to investigate allegations of health care fraud based out of Brooklyn, New York, where the company has clients.

Napolitano said investigators were copying data from the company’s computers, as well as seizing some paper documents.

“It’s just an allegation at this point. We’ll see where it goes from there,” Napolitano told 6 News.

Workers at Anesthesia Business Consultants said they were told to go home.

The investigation is expected to take approximately a week.

6 News has a crew on the scene and will have additional information as it becomes available.
