The Washington Attorney General's Office on Friday, Feb. 28, filed charges in Thurston County Superior Court against a woman who allegedly billed State Medicaid for more than $87,000 in healthcare provider services while living in Nevada.
Prosecutors with the Attorney General's Office Medicaid Fraud Control Unit charged Peggy Ruth Kerr with one count of 1st degree theft, and one count of Medicaid false statement.
The state alleges that Kerr, from 2007-2013, failed to disclose and intentionally concealed information from the Medicaid program that would have affected her ability to continue to be a paid healthcare provider in Clark County. She is accused of stealing a total of $87,462.00.
