The owner of a medical transportation company that provided rides for patients in the state’s Medicaid program has pleaded not guilty to charges of improperly billing the state more than $470,000 for rides never provided, in some cases using the names of dead people. Cynthia Keegan of Webster was released on personal recognizance after her arraignment Tuesday in Worcester on charges of larceny and false Medicaid claims. Prosecutors said Keegan Enterprises LLC, doing business as Cross Roads Trolley, was contracted by the state to provide nonemergency medical transportation for patients using wheelchairs. Prosecutors said that over a five-year period, the company submitted more than 1,500 claims to MassHealth using the names of 47 dead people.
