Federal agents and New York City police say 48 people are charged in a $108 million Medicaid fraud case.

Authorities say the arrests on Tuesday are the result of an investigation of a so-called "pill diversion" scheme. The scheme involved obtaining medication for such ailments as HIV and asthma from Medicaid recipients. They were then channeled to a distributor who resold them to pharmacies.
