Judge Sentences Izard County Female to Medicaid Scams

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today revealed the conviction of an Izard County female for weding a patient she was taking care of, which would make her disqualified to be paid by the Medicaid program, and continuing to offer care.

Anna Moore pleaded guilty in Pulaski County Circuit Court and was sentenced to 5 years’ probation and to pay $5,232 in restitution to the Arkansas Medicaid Program Trust Fund, $500 in fines and court expenses.

” Medicaid is an essential program for a few of the most susceptible Arkansans,” stated Attorney General Rutledge. “Investigators and lawyers in the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit work every day to examine and prosecute people, like Moore, who defraud the system. This lady made the most of the system, and I will continue to examine people trying to defraud Arkansas taxpayers to guarantee they are held liable.”.

Moore, 60, of Melbourne, pleaded guilty to a kind of Medicaid scams including theft of property by deceptiveness, a Class C felony. She was taking care of Clifton Davis, who pleaded guilty to the exact same charges in April.

This case was started by a recommendation from the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General and was prosecuted in coordination with the 6th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney, Larry Jegley.
