Probation, Restitution For Medicaid Fraud
(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A Las Vegas man was given a suspended 5-month jail sentence, ordered to pay $23,000 dollars restitution, and was ordered to perform community service and serve two years probation in a Medicaid fraud case.
Authorities say 43 year old Garren Morris failed to maintain proper records.
He reportedly submitted progress notes and time and attendance documents to a behavioral health company for services he allegedly provided to Medicaid recipients, but records showed he did not visit or call on those recipients for the times listed. The state Attorney general’s office says the fraud occurred between early 2011 and July of last year.
