Lake City woman pleads guilty to Medicaid fraud

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Lake City woman has been sentenced to three years probation for Medicaid fraud.

Martha Renshaw, 51, pleaded guilty to billing for Medicaid services not provided, a Class C felony.

On Friday she was sentenced and ordered to pay $4,210.95 in restitution and $6,632.85 in fines, according to a news release from Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.

Renshaw was arrested in December as part of an investigation into Allcare Homecare in Jonesboro.

She pleaded guilty to the charges in Pulaski County Circuit Court on Tuesday.

Rutledge said Renshaw has already paid nearly half of the required restitution to the Arkansas Medicaid Program Trust Fund.
