Kentucky Attorney General Greg Stumbo announced that Dr. Arthur Daus, a psychiatrist who had been practicing in the Louisville area, has been sentenced in Jefferson Circuit Court for illegally over billing Medicaid and Medicare for multiple office visits even though patients made only single visits.

Daus, 71, received a sentence of one year, probated for a period of two years on the felony count of Devising or Engaging in a Scheme to Defraud the Kentucky Medicaid program, and 12 months probated for two years on the misdemeanor count of Theft by Deception for improperly obtaining funds from the federal Medicare program.

The case was handled by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud & Abuse Control Division and the Kentucky Bureau of Investigation in cooperation with Special Agent Linda Carrithers with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Special Agent Mark Bartley with Health and Human Services.
