Personal care assistant required to pay $25,000 for Medicaid fraud

Posted: Updated:

A personal care attendant will serve five years probation and be ordered to pay back $25,000  to Missouri's Medicaid Program. 

Yvonne Conly was originally sentence to serve three concurrent prison sentences of five years, following her guilty pleas for Medicaid fraud back in May of this year. 

Conley, 55, pled guilty to two Class C felonies of Medicaid Fraud and a Class C felony of stealing by deceit. 

Conley worked for four different personal care companies that had contracts with Medicare. She would provide healthcare services to patients in their homes, and then submit reports on all the services she provided to the patients. 

Through January 2012 to October 2012, Conley reported that she provided healthcare services to two-or-three different patients at the same time on the same day. Her companies then submitted her claims to Medicaid. 

In addition to her sentences, Conley is required to pay $3,750 to Missouri Medicaid in restitution, $11,250 in damages, and $10,000 in civil penalties, according to the press release issued by the Attorney General Chris Koster's Office.
