LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel says health care workers in Benton, Craighead and Mississippi counties have been arrested in separate Medicaid fraud investigations.

McDaniel said Tuesday that 33-year-old Jennifer Reid Casey of Rogers is accused of defrauding the Arkansas Medicaid program of more than $27,473. Investigators allege Casey submitted claims to Medicaid for payment for adult day care services that were not provided.

McDaniel says 26-year-old Jonathan Chandler of Blytheville was arrested for allegedly fraudulently billing Medicaid for reimbursement for attendant care services he did not provide.

And 50-year-old Martha Renshaw of Lake City was arrested on accusations that she billed the Arkansas Medicaid Program $4,210 for in-home services that she did not provide.

Chandler and Renshaw were released on their own recognizance, and Casey was released on $3,500 bond.
