2 LR women accused of Medicaid fraud

By The Associated Press

This article was published April 16, 2014 at 3:53 p.m.

Two Little Rock women who run a day treatment center have been arrested for purportedly bilking the state's Medicaid program out of more than $41,000.

Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said Wednesday that Darann Bright Harrison, 57, and her daughter, Tamecia Dion Bright, 34, were arrested last week following an investigation.

Both were released from jail after each posted $2,500 bond. It was unknown if either had an attorney.

The women allegedly forged prescriptions in the name of a Little Rock doctor, then billed Medicaid for reimbursement.

They're also accused of overbilling for services provided by employees or ex-employees and billing for work that was never done by the employees or ex-employees.

Don't forget that 99% of all fraud is committed by Providers - not patients.
So doing away with a program that helps poor people hurts the poor people.
And HM2, Those people are definitely the tip of the iceberg. Over 90% of the provider fraud is committed by white people.

But it's okay for John Richard Hays to steal more than double this amount from a church and a school? Really????? HM2, go purchase yourself a Bible and use it, please.
Thanks for actually being the voice of reason cliffcarson. I don't know you personally, but as a professional, reasonable, brother in Christ (regardless of your race) I love you to the moon and back!

So onlyGodmatters, so long as there are others that steal more than these two crooks then that somehow makes it OK? Your logic evades me. And Cliff show us the source of that fun fact; 90% of provider fraud is committed by white people. Seriously, that's a stat that someone has been keeping up with? Percentage of provider fraud committed by white people. So what's the percentage committed by black people? And brown people? And yellow people? And red people?

PatWaverly, neither is "okay". BUT, if an individual is going to post derogatory / sarcastic / racially-inflammatory comments about this article, then I expect that same individual to post derogatory / sarcastic / racially-inflammatory comments about the other article. Either comment about both, or shut up about both. My preference: If you don't have anything good to say, then shut up about both.
