MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -

The operator of a home health care agency in northeast Minneapolis is charged with filing bogus Medicaid billings totaling more than $400,000.

The Star Tribune reports 40-year-old Abshir Ahmed of Minneapolis was charged Tuesday in federal court with health care fraud.

Prosecutors allege that from 2008 through mid-2011, Ahmed submitted false claims through Lucky Home Health Care Inc. for services by personal care assistants that were not carried out.

A phone message left for Ahmed's attorney was not immediately returned Thursday.
