Mental health therapist convicted of Medicaid fraudTell North Platte what you think
 

Jennie Miller, formerly of Chadron, pleaded no contest to one count of fraudulently obtaining payments on behalf of a Medicaid recipient, Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning announced Thursday.

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 General’s Office Medicaid Fraud and Patient Abuse Unit investigated.

“Today’s 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.
