Nev. Personal Care Assistant Sentenced for Medicaid Fraud in Double Billing Scheme

March 25, 2004

Nevada Attorney General Brian Sandoval announced recently that Janice Proctor, 51, was sentenced for two counts of Conspiracy to Commit Medicaid Fraud.

Proctor was sentenced to 12 months on each of the counts to be served concurrently which was suspended. She was given three (3) days credit for time served, and placed on 2 years probation. In addition, she was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,110.00.

The prosecution of the case was handled by the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU). According to MFCU director Tim Terry, Proctor received payment for services she did not render.

Specifically, Proctor submitted billing information to two different home health agencies for services performed for just one patient. Each of the home health agencies then submitted claims to Nevada Medicaid causing a double payment.
