TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office today arrested Christopher A. Days, 43, for more than $65,000 in Medicaid fraud. Days, the owner of Better Days of North Central Florida, LLC., allegedly defrauded the Florida Medicaid program by overbilling, billing for services not rendered and failing to properly document for services rendered for several Medicaid recipients.
Days faces one count of Medicaid provider fraud of more than $50,000, a first degree felony. If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison, and more than $400,000 in fines and restitution. The State Attorney’s Office for the Eighth Judicial Circuit will prosecute the case. At the time of arrest, bail was set to $200,000.
The Attorney General's MFCU investigates and prosecutes providers that intentionally defraud the state's Medicaid program through fraudulent billing practices. From Jan. 2011 to Nov. 2014, Attorney General Bondi's MFCU has obtained more than $466 million in settlements and judgments. Citizens with information on Medicaid fraud can report to the Attorney General's fraud hotline at 1-866-966-7226.
