Green County Man Sentenced for Medical Assistance Fraud

 

MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced that a Green County man was sentenced today related to his conviction of medical assistance fraud, a felony.  On January 24, 2012, Anthony Anglin entered a no contest plea to one felony fraud count, a charge which stems from his ownership of Anglin Transportation Company.  

 

Today sentence was withheld, and Anglin was placed on five years’ probation conditioned on the service of one year in the county jail.  Anglin will be permitted work release privileges as long as he remains alcohol and controlled substance free.   Also, as a condition of probation, Anglin must pay $111,417.71 in restitution; $7,619.00 was paid toward restitution at the time of sentencing. 

 

According to the Department of Justice’s criminal complaint, Anglin, of 902 9th Street in Monroe, owned Anglin Transportation Company, a specialized medical vehicle service that transports Medicaid recipients to and from medical appointments.  Between June 2009 and April 2010, Anglin billed the Medicaid program for services Anglin Transportation had not provided.  

 

The case was investigated by the Medicaid Fraud Control and Elder Abuse Unit and prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Gabrysiak.
