(Boise) – Attorney General Lawrence Wasden has announced an Ada County woman was sentenced Friday, March 1, for provider fraud.
51-year-old Kimberley A. Reed, of Boise, pleaded guilty in January.
Fourth District Court Judge Jason Scott sentenced Reed to a unified sentence of two years. The judge then suspended the sentence and ordered the defendant to complete two years of probation. Reed was also ordered to serve 75 days in jail as well as 30 days of discretionary jail. The court also ordered her to serve 150 hours of community service and pay $1,905 in restitution to Living Independence Network Corporation, as well as court costs.
In June 2015, Reed, a care provider, submitted progress reports detailing personal care services provided to a client. Investigators later determined the client in question was incarcerated in the Ada County Jail when Reed claimed to have administered care. The false reports were later used as the basis for fraudulent Medicaid billings.
Deputy Attorney General Rondee Blessing in the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit prosecuted the case.
