New Hampshire Woman Gets Jail Time for Submitting Fake Bills

September 28, 2012

A New Hampshire woman who fabricated bills for medical care and massage treatment in a worker’s compensation settlement will spend a year in jail.

Phyllis Graham of Manchester pleaded guilty to felony theft by deception and attempted theft by deception.

Prosecutors at the Attorney General’s office say Graham in 2009 and 2010 created fake bills from hospitals in two states and a non-existent massage therapist and submitted them to Sedgwick Claims Management Services – administrator of her worker’s compensation settlement.

As part of her plea agreement, Graham must pay more than $30,000 in restitution to Sedgwick.

The case was investigated by the Attorney General’s Office and the New Hampshire Insurance Department’s fraud unit.
