12:07 AFTERNOON UPDATE: Barren County man indicted on Medicaid fraud

GLASGOW — A former co-owner of a Barren County mental health treatment center has been indicted and arraigned on charges of theft and fraud, according to a press release from the office of Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway.

On Jan. 31, a Barren County grand jury charged Jeremy Catron, 36, with theft by unlawful taking over $10,000 and devising or engaging in a scheme to defraud the Kentucky Medicaid program. Catron was arraigned this morning in Barren Circuit Court and pleaded not guilty, according the attorney general's press release. A pretrial hearing was set for April 28.

 

Catron is the former co-owner of Alliance Counseling Associates. The indictment alleges that Catron billed the Kentucky Medicaid program for therapy services that he did not perform, resulting in a loss to the Medicaid program of more than $10,000.

 

Theft by unlawful taking over $10,000 is a Class C felony. Devising or engaging in a scheme to defraud the Kentucky Medicaid program is a Class D felony. If convicted, Catron faces up to 15 years in prison, according to the AG's statement.

 

This case was investigated by General Conway’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Unit and the Cabinet for Health and Family Services’ Office of the Inspector General. It will be prosecuted by the Office of the Attorney General in Barren Circuit Court.

 

A charge is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
