EAST LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -- Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel charged a Detroit doctor with Medicaid fraud on Friday.

Nessel says Dr. Ashok Boinpally was providing Medicaid-funded vaccines he received through the Vaccines for Children program to patients covered by private insurance and then billing those insurance companies.

Medicaid fraud carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison or a $50,000 fine.
