Officials to testify on alleged foster care fraud in Wisconsin

The findings of an audit of a Middleton foster care agency accused of fraud will get an airing before a state Senate committee.

Community Care Resources is accused of overcharging taxpayers millions by exploiting weaknesses in financial oversight by counties and the state. The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families has already revoked the company’s license, and is seeking repayment.

The company’s owner, Dan Simon, has denied the allegations.

The Senate Health and Human Services Committee will hear testimony Thursday.
