The veteran business executive hired by Florida Healthcare Plus is trying to repair the image of the firm after six former employees were indicted for their role in an international, $25 million Medicare and Medicaid scam, the Miami Herald reports.

In an interview, Susan Rawlings Molina says no one else at the company knew about the fraud, except for the ex-employees who are now facing charges. Only the former workers, not the company, are accused of wrongdoing.

Meanwhile, in an unrelated case, a clinic owned by a husband and wife in Orlando have been charged for committing $3 million in Medicare fraud, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
