(SALEM) - A Salem man has been charged in a health care fraud scheme that ran from June 2003 to December 2007.

Timothy M. Morrison, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, announced that James M. Moore, of Salem, was charged today with health care fraud, following an investigation by the Health and Human Services Administration, Office of Inspector General, Indiana Attorney General Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The information alleges that Moore knowingly billed Medicaid for transporting Medicaid recipients who were able to walk as if they were unable to walk, thereby doubling his reimbursement for the transport, for a total loss to the Indiana Medicaid program of approximately $348,000.

According to assistant U.S. Attorney Winfield D. Ong, who is prosecuting the case for the government, Moore faces a maximum possible prison sentence of 10 years and a maximum possible fine of $250,000.
