Woman sentenced in Medicaid fraud case, claimed to be nurse
HENRY COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -
The owner of a Henry County personal care home was sentenced to prison for falsely claiming to be registered nurse.
On Aug. 19, Madeline Laruy entered a non-negotiated guilty plea to one count of Medicaid Fraud and one count of False Statements and Writings in Henry County Superior Court.
Laruy was sentenced to 180 days in prison, followed by four and a half years probation.
Laruy was also ordered to pay $61,346.07 in restitution.
Over the course of three years, Laruy acted as a registered nurse to patients, patient families and regulatory agencies when in fact she was not, according to investigators. She also signed documents falsely claiming to be an RN, and then submitted claims to Georgia Medicaid for improper reimbursement.
