Lexington, KY man indicted - theft by deception in Medicaid case
Attorney General Jack Conway announces arrest following investigation by OAG Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control.
By Daniel Kemp, Deputy Communications Director
Attorney General Jack Conway today, Friday, November 15, 2013, announced the arrest and indictment of a Lexington, KY man following an investigation by General Conway's Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control.
A Fayette County grand jury indicted 28-year-old Ahmad Davis on one count of theft by deception of more than $10,000 and one count of devising or engaging in a scheme to defraud the Kentucky Medical Assistance Program over $300.
The indictment alleges that Davis submitted false and fraudulent timesheets for payment of services to a Medicaid recipient. The recipient should have been receiving services as part of the Consumer Directed Option (CDO) administered by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services' Department for Aging and Independent Living. The CDO program allows certain Medicaid recipients freedom to choose their own providers and flexibility in the delivery of services while accessing community programs. Davis is accused of submitting timesheets in which he claimed to have provided caregiving services that he did not actually perform.
Davis was arraigned today in Fayette Circuit Court.
Theft by deception of $10,000 or greater is a Class C felony and carries a potential sentence of five to 10 years in prison. Intent to defraud the Kentucky Medical Assistance Program over $300 is a Class D felony with a potential sentence of one to five years in prison and a fine from $1,000 to $10,000.
A charge is an allegation only. All defendants are innocent until proven guilty.
Since Attorney General Conway took office in January 2008, his Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control has recovered or been awarded more than $250 million dollars for the state and federal Medicaid programs. These cases range from lawsuits and settlements against pharmaceutical companies to cases against individual providers. In 2013, General Conway's Medicaid Fraud Unit was named one of the most aggressive in the country by the nonprofit watchdog group Public Citizen.The Attorney General's Tip Line for reporting allegations of Medicaid fraud is 1-877-228-7384.
