Female Ordered to Pay Triple Money Gotten in Medicaid Scams

Lincoln, Neb. (AP)– A lady sentenced to federal jail previously today for healthcare scams in Nebraska has now been purchased to pay the state more than $400,000 for the incorrect Medicaid claims.

The Nebraska Attorney General’s workplace stated Thursday that Chandra Wrightsell, who ran Evol Consulting, has been bought by a Lancaster County District judge to pay $439,777 to the state– 3 times the quantity she’s implicated of getting through scams.

Authorities say she sent more than 1,300 claims to the Nebraska Medicaid program but did not have any documents to reveal that the services were ever rendered. She was paid more than $146,000 on those claims.

On Wednesday in federal court, Wrightsell was sentenced to 18 months behind bars and was informed to pay almost $106,000 in restitution.
