Theresa Clay Guy, 38, of
Guy, a direct service worker, is charged with submitting false timesheets to her employers claiming that she simultaneously provided personal care services to two Medicaid recipients at their homes. Guy submitted claims under the name “Theresa Clay” at one employer and “Theresa Guy” at the other. This overlap resulted in the Medicaid program being falsely billed.
Direct service workers are hired by Medicaid providers to care for physically handicapped or elderly Medicaid recipients. They provide caregiver services such as cooking, grooming, and bathing.
If convicted of Medicaid fraud, Guy could face up to five years in prison and pay up to $20,000 in fines on both counts.
To report suspected Medicaid fraud, please contact the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit at 1-888-799-6885.
