COLUMBIA, LA (WAFB) - The attorney general of Louisiana said a personal care attendant accused of Medicaid fraud turned herself in to authorities.
Caroline Hall, 43, of Columbia, LA, is charged with Medicaid fraud and filing or maintaining false public records. Columbia is just south of Monroe.
Hall is suspected of submitting timesheets stating she provided in-home caregiver services to a Medicaid patient when the patient was actually in the hospital.
The Office of the Louisiana Attorney General said if convicted, Hall could face up to 10 years in prison and as much as $25,000 in fines.
Authorities reported she surrendered Friday to Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit investigators in Baton Rouge. She was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
