Medicaid fraud in Ohio is penalized based on the amount of money involved. Fraud involving an amount of under $1000 is considered a misdemeanor of the first degree and can be penalized by a jail sentence of up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. With fraud involving higher amounts, a violation can be treated as a felony of the fifth, fourth, or third degree, which means a possible prison sentence of up to 60 months and a fine of up to $10,000.
