LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge announced the arrest of a Mississippi County woman by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
Lenisha Nicole Daniels, 31, of Blytheville, was arrested on one count of Medicaid fraud. On Monday, July 27, she turned herself into the Pulaski County Jail where she posted bond and was released. Daniels is accused of billing the Arkansas Medicaid Program $1,900 for Medicaid services she did not perform. Plea and arraignment hearings will be set in Pulaski County District Court at a later date.
Medicaid fraud occurs when Medicaid providers use the Medicaid program to obtain money to which they are not entitled.
