Camden County woman charged with Medicaid fraud
CAMDEN COUNTY - Charges involving health care fraud were filed Tuesday against a woman accused of acting as a personal care giver to someone who was in jail and not receiving the treatments.
Camden County prosecuting attorney Michael Gilley said Lisa Long submitted signed timesheets to the Missouri Medicaid Consumer Directed Services program on two occasions from January 8, 2013 through January 24, 2013.
The fraud cost MO HealthNet a total of $955.71 in claims.
This program allows qualified MO HealthNet parcipants to hire a personal care attendant to provide services for them.
Camden County jail records show the Medicaid participant who Long is accused of providing care for was in jail while Long was claiming the timesheets.
Long and the Medicaid recipiant lived at the same address before the arrests.
