Attorney General Leslie Rutledge announced the arrest of two women by her office’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. 

Anna Moore, of Melbourne, turned herself in to the Izard County Sheriff’s Office on one count of Medicaid fraud. 

Moore, 59, is accused of marrying the Medicaid recipient she was providing services to and continuing to submit billing documents for those services. 

The total was more than $10,000 for food services she was not eligible to provide due to the marriage. 

Moore was released after posting bond, and she is scheduled to appear in the Pulaski County District Court in September.

The case was referred to the Attorney General’s Office by the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General.

Deshundra Thomas, 27, of Wilmar, turned herself in to the Warren Police Department on one count of failure to report adult or long-term care facility resident maltreatment which is a Class B misdemeanor.

Thomas saw another employee abuse a resident and failed to report it to the facility.

 She was released after posting bond and awaits a court date to be set in the Drew County District Court.

To report Medicaid fraud or abuse or neglect in residential care facilities, contact the Attorney General’s Medicaid fraud hotline at (866) 810-0016 or oag@arkansasag.gov
