October 19, 2015
LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge announced today that a Poinsett County woman has been sentenced to five years of probation on a Medicaid fraud charge.
Kelly Gregg, 43, of Trumann pleaded guilty to billing for Medicaid services not provided, a Class B felony. Gregg must also pay $3,557.31 in restitution and $10,671.93 in fines.
“Investigators and attorneys from the Attorney General’s office are working tirelessly to catch and prosecute those who commit Medicaid fraud,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Medicaid is a critical safety net for some of the most vulnerable Arkansans, and I am committed to holding criminals who steal from Medicaid accountable.”
Gregg was arrested in December after it was reported to investigators that she was billing for services to a friend’s mother between January 2013 and March 2014 but was not providing the services. Gregg pleaded guilty in Pulaski County Circuit Court on Monday.
The Attorney General Medicaid Fraud Control Until has arrested 24 individuals and has obtained 17 convictions across the State this year.
