TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—An investigation led by Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit culminated late yesterday afternoon with the arrest of Ashley Vyktoria Tullon, 27, for Medicaid fraud, a third degree felony. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit took Tullon into custody, following an investigation that revealed Tullon billed Medicaid for services never rendered.
The Medicaid Fraud Control Unit began its investigation after receiving information from another Medicaid provider, as well as the Agency for Persons with Disabilities. If convicted, Tullon faces up to five years in prison, and up to $10,500 in fines and restitution. This case will be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office for the Fourth Judicial Circuit.
