Marysville woman charged with false claim and forgery

A Marysville woman has been ordered to repay $3,856 and will serve 18 months probation for one count of making a false claim to the Medicaid Program and two counts of forgery, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Amy Kearn, 29, Marysville, was sentenced today in Marshall County District Court by Judge James A. Patton. The charges stemmed from an investigation into attendant care billings by Kearn in 2011. She pleaded no contest in January to submitting timesheet and payroll claims for Medicaid services she did not provide.

Assistant Attorney General John Bryant of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case. The case was investigated by the Kansas Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Division.
