A Kansas City woman last week pleaded guilty to Medicaid fraud and related charges. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office reports that 28 year old Jennifer Jones pleaded guilty to one count of Medicaid fraud, one count of felony possession of a controlled substance, and one count of making false information. The charges stemmed from an investigation by the attorney general’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Division, which revealed that Jones stole prescription medications… specifically oxycodone… while working as a Certified Nurse Aide in a nursing facility last June. As a condition of the plea, Jones has agreed to voluntarily surrender her certification with the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services. She will be sentenced on June 21st.
