Woman accused of Medicaid fraud

WOODSTOCK — A woman has been charged with submitting false claims for providing care under Vermont Medicaid’s Children’s Personal Care Services program.
Attorney General William Sorrell said 21-year-old Tammy Thomas of Granville, N.Y., was arraigned Tuesday in Windsor County on four felony counts of Medicaid fraud and one count of false pretenses. She pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Court paperwork says Thomas is accused of submitting the claims for payments in excess of $3,100, when, in fact, she provided no such care. She’s accused of causing another person’s signature to be signed on the claims and falsely authorizing payments to herself.
