Last updated on Tuesday, January 6, 2009

(ANDERSON) - An Anderson man is charged with health care fraud for allegedly bilking Indiana Medicaid out of nearly $1-million dollars.

55-year-old Dennis Lennartz will make an initial court appearance January 20 in federal court in Indianapolis. Lennartz is accused of using the Medicaid provider number for Wabash-based Waters Transportation, which provides transportation for patients to medical appointments.

Officials have not identified Lennartz's role with the company, only saying Lennartz and the business's owner were "associates."
