A number of counties in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia are still wasting millions in taxpayer dollars placing normal children in a psychiatric facility in the Hallmark Youthcare Inc. Richmond resulting in Federal/State Medicaid picking up the cost of their care, rather than the counties, themselves and for personal gain of the government officials involved in the illicit commitment of those children.  As much as 85 children are being abused and neglected, outside of the oversight of the children’s parents and family, and anyone who cares about these kids.   Sound illegal?

Hallmark Youthcare Richmond, based in Macon, Georgia, is located just outside of Richmond where one foster child, Ashlie Mae O’Brien was placed when Arlington DHS sought to keep her away from her loving  family.

This appears highly irregular and a misuse of taxpayer dollars — with the facts strongly suggesting that Medicaid fraud is involved.   Is this being done for a kickback like what was happening in Pennsylvania?  Once again, CPS of local counties like Arlington DHS fails our children.

Arlington has admitted that it is not in the best interests of children to be committed to such facilities, but the local courts don’t stop it.  Are the personal gains of those involved in the commitments so great that they would compromise these children’s futures?
