Miller faces up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Miller claimed more than $15,000 in Medicaid payments for services she did not render, Bruning said.

Investigators said Miller received $15,629.06 for mental health services she claimed to have provided in 2009 in Chadron. However, at that time she was incarcerated in Wyoming on unrelated charges, Bruning said.

The Attorney Generalís Office Medicaid Fraud and Patient Abuse Unit investigated.

ďTodayís plea helps to ensure she is held accountable for this blatant act of fraud," Bruning said.

Miller is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 27 in Dawes County District Court in Chadron.
