(Neb.)-Former Chadron Therapist Pleads Guilty To Fraud
LINCOLN, Neb. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - A former western Nebraska therapist has pleaded no contest to one count of Medicaid fraud.
Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning says Jennie Miller, formerly of Chadron, entered the plea on Thursday in Dawes County District Court. Bruning says Miller claimed more than $15,000 in Medicaid payments for services she did not provide.
The plea stems from an investigation by the Attorney General's Office Medicaid Fraud and Patient Abuse Unit. The investigation showed Miller received $15,629 for mental health services she claimed to have provided in 2009 in Chadron. But the investigation found she was jailed in Wyoming on unrelated charges at the time she claimed to have provided those services.
Miller faces up to five years in prison when she's sentenced on Nov. 27.
