Counselor charged with Medicaid fraud

OKLAHOMA CITY - Attorney General Scott Pruitt's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit has filed charges against the owner of a Midwest City youth counseling agency for billing services to children that parents say didn't happen.

William E. Allensworth, 39, of Oklahoma City, was arrested after being charged with two counts of Medicaid fraud. According to charges filed in Oklahoma County District Court, Allensworth purportedly billed the Oklahoma Health Care Authority for $7,750 in alleged fraudulent claims for services to seven children for which he failed to maintain records, according to the AG's office. Oklahoma Medicaid providers are required to keep records of services provided to recipients for at least six years from the service date.

During interviews with investigators, two of the children's parents said Allensworth never counseled their children and the remaining parents identified dates that were billed when no services were provided.
