PARSONS – (June 25, 2013) – A Labette County woman was ordered yesterday to repay $3,500 to the Kansas Medicaid program after pleading guilty to Medicaid fraud, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.
Crystal L Scott, 42, of Parsons, was sentenced Monday to 24 months of probation, along with the restitution, by Judge Jeffry Jack in Labette County District Court. Scott pleaded guilty in May to charges of making a false claim to the Medicaid program, unlawful acts relating to the Medicaid program and conspiracy to make a false claim to the Medicaid program.
The State alleged that Scott signed up as a personal care attendant for a patient through the Southeast Kansas Independent Living Center (SKIL) in Parsons to provide sleep cycle support at the patient’s home from February2010 to February 2011. She submitted time sheets for those services, but did not provide them.
The case was investigated by the Kansas Attorney General’s Office Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Division. Assistant Attorney General John Bryant of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.
