Flint-Saginaw-Bay City, MI (WNEM) — Twenty felony counts of Medicaid fraud have been filed against the president and owner of a Saginaw treatment center.

Nessel said their investigation found a former employee of the treatment center was not licensed to provide counseling service to patients of the clinic. The official complaint alleges that Clark, 70, of Saginaw, knew this employee was not licensed, yet allowed her to provide counseling services anyway. Clark then billed Medicaid for those services under his own provider identification number.READ MORE: James Craig Announces Run For Governor, Begins To Campaign
“Patients expect that when they seek out treatment services, the individuals providing those services are properly certified and licensed,” said Nessel. “Those who think they can get away with providing misleading medical services will be held accountable.”
Clark turned himself in and was arraigned. The penalty for Medicaid fraud is four years in prison.MORE NEWS: Flat Rock Sewers Free Of Gasoline From Ford Gas Leak
