OKLAHOMA CITY — A former children's counselor has pleaded guilty to 11 counts of Medicaid fraud.
Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt brought the charges against 58-year-old Edmond resident Vincent Chukuneye Dike.
Dike worked as a licensed professional counselor under supervision for Genesi LLC in Moore and Reliant Living Center in Del City between 2013 and 2014.
During the time, Dike allegedly submitted fraudulent bills to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority for unperformed services, totaling more than $78,000.
Dike will serve 10 years' probation and is ordered to pay nearly $180,000 in restitution, fines and investigative costs.
