KANSAS CITY, Kan. – (November 24, 2015) – A Kansas City, Kan., woman was ordered to repay nearly $6,000 to the Kansas Medicaid Program after pleading guilty to Medicaid fraud-related charges, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.
Tynisha Lsha Bettis, 23, pleaded guilty in October in Wyandotte County District Court to one count of making a false claim to the Medicaid program. On Friday, Judge Michael A. Russell ordered Bettis to repay $5,987.41 to the Kansas Medicaid Program. Judge Russell also sentenced Bettis to 12 months probation and 12 months post-release supervision with an underlying sentence of six months in prison. Convictions such as this one also result in a period during which the defendant is prohibited from being paid wages through a government health care program.
An investigation revealed that Bettis billed Medicaid for providing services to Medicaid recipients with traumatic brain injuries during the same hours she reported she was working for other employers. The consumers did not receive the services. The crime occurred between February 2013 and August 2014.
The case was investigated by the attorney general’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Division, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services/Office of Inspector General and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant Attorney General Alma Heckler of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.
