KCK Male Purchased to Pay Back $13,000 for Medicaid Scams

A Kansas City, Kan., the male was bought today to pay back more than $13,000 to the Kansas Medicaid program after being condemned of Medicaid scams, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt stated.

Jasmon Watson, 33, was condemned in March of one count of Medicaid scams by a Wyandotte County jury. Judge Bill L. Klapper today purchased Watson to pay back $13,077.22 to the Kansas Medicaid Program.

Judge Klapper also sentenced Watson to 12 months of probation with a hidden sentence of 5 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections. Convictions such as this one might also lead to a duration throughout which the offender is restricted from being paid salaries through a federal government health care program.

An examination exposed that Watson billed Medicaid for offering home care based services to people with terrible brain injuries throughout the very same hours he was operating at another job. The criminal offenses took place in between February 2013 and August 2014.

The case was collectively examined by federal and state authorities and prosecuted by the chief law officer’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Division. Assistant Attorney General Alma Heckler of Schmidt’s workplace prosecuted the case versus Watson.
