A Southeast Kansas man pleads guilty to a Medicaid fraud charge.
37-year-old Williams Carl Morris, of Altamont, has been ordered to repay the Kansas Medicaid program more than $1,200 after pleading guilty to fraud charges. Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach says Morris was sentenced in Labette County District Court on one count of submitting a false claim, statement or representation to the Kansas Medicaid program. Labette County District Judge Fred Johnson sentenced Morris to pay $1,276.95 in restitution and to serve 12 months of supervised probation.
Investigators for the attorney general’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Division determined that Morris submitted false claims that he was providing personal care attendant services to his mother, a Medicaid beneficiary. Morris stated dates that he allegedly provided the services, but investigators determined that his mother was in fact in another city during that time.
