Ludington Man Faces Charges for Multiple Medicaid Fraud Charges

Posted: Updated:

A Ludington man faces felony charges for submitting multiple false Medicaid billings.

Attorney General Bill Schuette is filing charges against David Hammond-Koskey.

The State, Sheriffs, Chiefs Enforcement Narcotics Team (SSCENT) reported a tip that Hammond-Koskey is over-prescribing controlled substances.

An undercover investigation revealed that Hammond-Koskey is writing prescriptions without medical justification, and billing Medicaid for procedures that were not performed, commonly known as up-coding. 

Tuesday, August 6, Schuette filed four charges against Hammond-Koskey.

Hammond-Koskey could face jail time and thousands of dollar worth of fines.

Hammond-Koskey was arrested Wednesday. He had a hearing later that day.

Judge Richard Ball set bond at $25,000. 

Hammond-Koskey has a preliminary hearing for August 16 at 1:00 PM.
