Omaha man gets probation for health care fraud

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 64-year-old Omaha man has been given five years of probation for health care fraud.

James Holt was sentenced on Wednesday. He'd pleaded guilty nine federal misdemeanors.

James Holt and his company, UMOJA, provided mental health services. Authorities say Holt and his company stole money by billing Nebraska Medicaid for services that weren't actually provided. Investigators say 231 false claims were submitted for payment.

Holt and the company must make total restitution of more than $15,500.
