An Omaha woman has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison and ordered to pay nearly $300,000 in restitution for health care fraud.
U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg says Miller also will be placed on three years supervised release after serving her prison sentence.
Federal District Judge John Gerrard sentenced Miller and ordered her to pay $294,263.00 in restitution following her conviction for health care fraud.
Miller owned and operated Home Care Services which provided Personal Assistance Services to Nebraska Medicaid recipients. Home Care also had a contract with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services to provide Chore Services to the poor.
Federal prosecutors say Miller routinely inflated costs submitted to Nebraska Medicaid and DHHS between at least February 2012 and September 2014 by adding hours so each recipient appears to have received the maximum amount of hours authorized.
