(Neb)-Woman Ordered To Pay $440,000 For Medicaid Fraud

By: John Axtell Posted at: 08/31/2017 11:54 PM
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A woman sentenced to 18-months in federal prison and ordered to pay nearly $106,000 restitution earlier this week for health care fraud in Nebraska has now been ordered to pay the state more than $400,000 for the false Medicaid claims.

      Chandra Wrightsell, who ran Evol Consulting, must pay the state $439,777 - three times the amount she's accused of receiving through fraud.

     Court documents show Wrightsell submitted more than 1,300 claims to the Nebraska Medicaid program and was paid over $146,000 but did not have any documentation to show the services were ever rendered. She was paid more than $146,000 on those claims.
