Insurance fraud expert witnesses may testify on insurance claims, insurance regulations, and associated matters. In this press release, Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway and his Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control announce that a former Lexington Medicaid provider has pled guilty to Medicaid fraud and forgery charges.
Irvin Smith, Jr. entered guilty pleas in Fayette Circuit Court today to one count of Medicaid fraud and three counts of second degree forgery. All are Class D felonies.
