A man has entered not guilty pleas in Fayette Circuit Court on charges of medicaid fraud and second degree forgery charges.

The Kentucky attorney general's office says Irvin Smith, Jr. is the former owner and sole employee of Irvco LLC, former provider in the Kentucky Medicaid SCL program.

An SCL is a home through the medicaid community-based waiver program that serves as an alternative to institutional care for mentally challenged or developmentally disabled individuals.

The indictment against Smith claims he falsified information related to tuberculosis testing and first aid and CPR training in order to remain an SCL provider.

The charges against Smith are class D felonies that carry a potential penalty range of one to five years in prison, and a fine of $1,000 to $10,000.
