An Iowa woman who worked for Mutual of Omaha has been sentenced to two years in prison for processing false insurance claims on behalf of a Vermont woman.
Rachel Lenagh of Neola was sentenced Friday in Omaha, Neb., for conspiracy to commit health care fraud. She had faced a sentence of up to five years.
The 39-year-old pleaded guilty in October.
Officials with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Omaha say that between 2001 and 2006, Lenagh submitted claims for nonexistent medical expenses, resulting in nearly $1.4 million in payments to Sharon Johnson of West Dover, Vermont. In return, Lenagh received $95,600 from Johnson.
Johnson is awaiting trial in the case.
