Killeen residents committed Medicaid fraud on the job, investigators say

An alleged Medicaid fraud scheme in Killeen has led to two residents each being indicted on a felony theft charge.

Karen Lea Bradley, 55, and Jason William McCaffery, 49, were indicted on Wednesday by a Bell County grand jury on a state jail felony charge of theft of property $2,500, or more but less than $30,000. According to state investigators, Bradley and McCaffery submitted false time sheets in order to bilk the Texas Health and Human Services Commission out of $10,793 in Medicaid funds over the course of two and a half years.

Both Bradley and McCaffery posted bond and were released from custody, according to jail and court records.

Investigators with the Office of the Texas Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit began looking into Bradley and McCaffery after receiving a report of possible Medicaid fraud committed by McCaffery. McCaffery was an “attendant and caregiver” at Alamo Consumer Direct (ACD), according to an arrest affidavit. ACD is part of Richardson, Texas, based Consumer Direct Care Network Texas and has an office in Austin.
