CASPER — A woman accused of overbilling Wyoming’s Medicaid program for services provided to her disabled daughter has reached a plea deal.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports Connie Bryant, of Casper, faces one to five years of probation after pleading guilty last month to obtaining goods by false pretenses. Wyoming Attorney General Greg Phillips announced her plea Tuesday.
Bryant had been providing services to her daughter through a Medicaid waiver program that helps people who want to live at home but require care typically found in a nursing facility. An investigator said Bryant had billed the state for daily care while typically only supplying service three days a week.
The Star-Tribune reports Bryant must repay the Medicaid program $4,400.
