Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge last week announced the conviction of Jacksonville’s Kethmany Anderson for Medicaid fraud.


Anderson pleaded guilty in Pulaski County District Court and must pay $600 in fines to the General Fund of the State of Arkansas. She has already paid $447.12 in restitution to the Arkansas Medicaid Program Trust Fund.


Anderson, 44, of Jacksonville pleaded guilty to one count of Medicaid fraud, a Class A misdemeanor for billing for services during the time that the Medicaid recipient was hospitalized in October 2015.


This case was referred to the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit by the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General and was prosecuted in cooperation with the Office of the 6th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Larry Jegley.
