Fraud trial rescheduled

By Staff
From staff reports
Dec. 21, 2000
The trial of a former Meridian psychiatrist indicted by a federal grand jury for Medicaid fraud has been rescheduled.
Dr. Walter O. Anderson is now expected to be tried Jan. 29 in Hinds County Circuit before Judge W. Swan Yerger.
This is the second delay in the trial.
Anderson, owner of The Kid's Connection, The Children's Clinic in Meridian, and a similar clinic in Laurel, was indicted in November 1998 on six counts of Medicaid fraud for allegedly billing Medicaid $80,000 a week between September 1997 and October 1998 for services not rendered.
Anderson's son, Walter P. Anderson, who worked at the clinics, was also indicted in the case.
In a separate civil action filed in November 1998, Attorney Mike Moore's office seized all of Anderson's personal and professional assets and filed simultaneous Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization complaints in Lauderdale, Newton and Jones counties.
The elder Anderson is continuing to practice while free on $3 million bond.
