FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) – A Fayette County woman has been found guilty of taking more than $30,000 from the state’s Medicaid program.

A jury found Amy Rector, 40, of Lexington, guilty on one count of Medicaid fraud, a Class D felony, and one count of theft by unlawful taking of property valued at $10,000 or more, a Class C felony. 

During the two-day trial, Beshear’s Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse presented evidence that from 2013 to 2015 Rector, while participating as an employee of the Medicaid Consumer Directed Option (CDO), fraudulently billed the program.

As a CDO employee of her sister, a Medicaid recipient, Rector submitted timesheets for specific patient-centered services that she never provided, resulting in an overpayment of more than $30,000.

The jury recommended a sentence of five years. A sentencing and restitution hearing is scheduled for April 13 in Fayette Circuit Court.

The Attorney General’s tip line for reporting allegations of Medicaid fraud is 1-877-ABUSE TIP.
