Former mental health case manager charged

A former case manager at the Lycoming-Clinton County Mental Health-Intellectually Disabled Program has been charged with Medicaid fraud after allegedly submitting false documentation regarding the hours he worked and the clients he visited, according Special Agent Veronica S. Bowers of the state Attorney General’s Office.

Bryan Scott Williams, 42, of 1604 High St., allegedly submitted false information about his workload while working at the county agency at 200 East Street between mid-February 2011 and early March 2012, Bowers said in an affidavit.

“The defendant submitted case notes for services that he did not render (to clients),” Bowers said.

In April, Williams admitted that he inflated the amount of times he provided services to his clients in order to meet workload requirements.

Williams also stated that “he had ‘bad days’ when he just didn’t feel like providing any services. He admitted that he billed for services that he did not provide,” Bowers said.

“Through his fraudulent documentation, he caused in excess of $1,500” to be billed to a medical assistance program, Bowers said.

Following his arraignment Tuesday before District Judge Allen P. Page III on two felony counts of Medicaid fraud, Williams was released on $5,000 bail.
