BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two Baton Rouge-area women have been booked with Medicaid fraud.

State Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said in a news release Monday that the women allegedly claimed services that were never rendered.

Caldwell said 55-year-old Beatrice Scott, of Springfield, allegedly filed 149 false claims, billing Medicaid for $8,500. She was arrested on one count of Medicaid fraud and one count of filing false public records.

He says 41-year-old Juandricka Williams, of Baton Rouge, allegedly submitted paperwork that resulted in billing Medicaid for $5,400 in services that were never rendered. She was booked with one count of Medicaid fraud.

Online jail records do not list attorneys for Scott or Williams.
