Federal authorities say six people have been indicted in a 48 million dollar Medicaid fraud scheme. 

Thirty-eight-year-old Ryan Sheridan and five others were charged this week with conspiracy to commit health care fraud related to drug and alcohol recovery centers in Austintown Township and Whitehall. Prosecutors say Sheridan is sole owner of Braking Point Recovery Services, which has been accused of charging Medicaid millions for services that weren't provided, weren't medically necessary or lacked proper documentation. The government seeks 3 million dollars in forfeited property, including Sheridan's replicas of vehicles from popular films.
