2 arrested in alleged Ark. Medicaid fraud scheme

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Two Little Rock women who run a day treatment center have been arrested for allegedly bilking the state's Medicaid program out of more than $41,000.

Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said Wednesday that Darann Bright Harrison and her daughter, Tamecia Dion Bright, 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.
