A Charlotte woman has been sentenced to two years and four months in federal prison for her role in a health care fraud ring.
LaChanda Clotiel Parks, 40, was part of a ring that defrauded Medicaid by filing false claims for mental and behavioral health services that were never provided, prosecutors said.
According to court filings, Parks generated some of the fake paperwork, including fake intake sessions, fake clinical assessments and fabricated therapy notes.
Court records show Parks and Alexander Bass, 42, and Torrey Darnell Moton, 45, both of Fuquay-Varina, executed the fraud through mental and behavioral health services owned by Bass and Moton. The companies included United Rehabilitation Services in Erwin, north of Fayetteville.
