Eight arrested on Multiple Medicaid Welfare Fraud Charges

Posted: Updated:
LAFAYETTE LA -

The Louisiana Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit has arrested eight more people accused on multiple Medicaid Welfare Fraud charges:

Alexis Arthur (29 of Opelousas - 10 counts),  Derrick Freeman (37 of Ville Platte - 3 counts), Latoya Johnson (33 of Palmetto - 3 counts), Casey Joseph (30 of New Roads - 4 counts), Latanya Joseph (34 of New Roads - 4 counts), Yolanda Patton (40 of Crowley - 4 counts), Amanda Porter (46 of New Roads - 3 counts), and Chloe Prier (26 of Mansura - 3 counts) were arrested for allegedly submitting time sheets and service logs for Medicaid services while working other jobs. They were booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

"The people of Louisiana deserve a Medicaid system that is not plagued with waste, fraud, and abuse," said Attorney General Jeff Landry. "My office will continue fighting daily to root out welfare fraud."

To report Medicaid fraud, abuse, and/or neglect in residential care facilities, AG Landry urges people to call his Medicaid Fraud Hotline at 888-799-6885 or visit www.AGJeffLandry.com.
