Rutledge Announces Lake City Woman Sentenced for Medicaid Fraud
November 13, 2015
LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge announced today that a Craighead County woman has been sentenced to three years of probation on a Medicaid fraud charge.
Martha Renshaw, 51, of Lake City pleaded guilty to billing for Medicaid services not provided, a Class C felony. Renshaw must also pay a total of $4,210.95 in restitution and $6,632.85 in fines.
“Medicaid fraud is a serious issue, and investigators and attorneys from the Attorney General’s office continue to work to protect those receiving care,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Those receiving Medicaid deserve the best care, and I remain committed to making sure those attempting to defraud Arkansans will be held accountable.”
Renshaw was arrested in December as part of an investigation into Allcare Homecare in Jonesboro. Renshaw has already paid nearly half of the required restitution to the Arkansas Medicaid Program Trust Fund. Renshaw pleaded guilty in Pulaski County Circuit Court on Tuesday.
