Idaho Falls woman sentenced for Medicaidfraud

Attorney General Lawrence Wasden announced Thursday the prosecution of a Bonneville County woman for defrauding the Idaho Medicaid Program.

On Wednesday, Seventh District Judge Darren B. Simpson sentenced 33-year-old Tiffany A. Larsen of Idaho Falls to two years fixed and up to five years in prison after she pleaded guilty on September 21 to executing a Medicaid fraud scheme.

The court suspended the prison sentence and ordered Larsen to immediately serve 75 days in the Bonneville County Jail, pay $1,431 in restitution and perform 100 hours of community service. She was also placed on probation for five years.

An investigation determined the defendant submitted a series of falsified progress notes that were used as a basis to submit claims for services through Larsen’s employer, Qualicare. The company discovered and reported the fraud to authorities and has returned all Medicaid payments associated with the fraud and fully cooperated with the investigation.

The case was prosecuted by Deputy Attorney General Ken Robins of the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
