AG’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit Arrests Ville Platte Man

A Ville Platte man has been charged with two counts of Medicaid fraud for filing false claims, announced Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell.

Brady P. Hudspeth, 36, of 1101 Chantel Road, was arrested on Thursday by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the Evangeline Parish Sheriff’s Office. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison without incident.

Hudspeth, a former mental health counselor intern, is charged with submitting false timesheets to a New Orleans care center where he was employed. Hudspeth fraudulently claimed that he provided services to Medicaid patients, resulting in the Medicaid program being falsely billed.

If convicted of Medicaid fraud, Hudspeth could face up to five years in prison and pay up to $20,000 in fines on each count.

To report suspected Medicaid fraud, please contact the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit at 1-888-799-6885.
