The Dec. 20 indictment, released by the Georgia Attorney General’s Office, said that in January 2009 and September 2011, Williams owned two businesses, Legacy Obstetrics and DeKalb Gynecology Associates on Snapfinger Woods Drive in Decatur.
It said that the primary business at DeKalb Gynecology Associates was the performance of elective abortions.
The indictment alleges that Williams accepted a total of $205,003 in Medicaid funds for services not rendered and for services associated with the performance of elective abortions.
Since 1976, the federal law known as the Hyde Amendment has prohibited the use of federal funds to pay for elective abortions and services associated with elective abortions.
In conformance with federal law and regulations, elective abortions and services associated with elective abortions are not covered by the Georgia Medicaid program.
Medicaid fraud is punishable by one to 10 years in prison and a fine of $10,000.
The case is being prosecuted by Nancy Allstrom, senior assistant attorney general from the Georgia Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
It was investigated by Investigator Shakethia Morgan, Investigative Auditor Amy Snow, Nurse Investigator Beth Ann Teague and Criminal Analyst Tish Murray in cooperation with the Georgia Department of Community Health.
At press time Thursday, Williams did not return telephone calls and had not turned himself in to the DeKalb Sheriff’s Office.
He is the second Decatur ob-gyn to be indicted on Medicaid fraud charges.
His former partner, Dr. Tyrone Malloy, who runs the Metropolitan Atlanta Ob-Gyn and Soapstone Center for Clinical Research on Rainbow Drive in Decatur and the Old National Gynecology in College Park, and his office manager CathyAnn Warner were indicted in February 2012 on similar charges.
