Three direct care service workers were arrested and charged with Medicaid fraud as a result of an investigation conducted by the Louisiana Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
Quenitta Butts, 39, and Kaisha Pitre, 26, were both charged with multiple counts of Medicaid fraud after allegedly defrauding the state’s Medicaid program by submitting falsified time sheets to receive payments. Christopher Jenkins, 33, was arrested in a separate incident and charged with one count of Medicaid fraud after allegedly submitting two separate service logs that indicate he was providing services to two different patients in two different locations at the same time.
