Attorney General Jack Conway and his Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Unit today announced the sentencing of a former Consumer Directed Options (CDO) employee on a charge involving Medicaid fraud.

 

On May 30, 2014, 29-year-old Ahmad Davis pleaded guilty in Fayette Circuit Court to one count of presenting fraudulent claims to defraud the state Medicaid program over $300, a class D felony.  This afternoon, Davis received a one-year prison sentence, which will be probated for three years.   He was also ordered to pay $14,505.36 in restitution to the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services. 

 

Davis worked as a CDO employee and provided care for a family member in exchange for payment from the state Medicaid program.  The CDO program, which is overseen by the Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living, serves the non-medical home health needs of members of Kentucky’s home and community-based waiver programs and allows members to choose who provides their non-medical services.

Davis submitted false timesheets while working as a CDO employee and received payments from Medicaid for services he did not perform, resulting in a financial loss of $14,505.36 to the Medicaid program.

 

Attorney General Conway’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Unit and the Cabinet for Health and Family Services’ Office of Inspector General investigated this case.  The case was prosecuted by General Conway’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Unit in Fayette Circuit Court.
