EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) _ An Emporia businesswoman is facing multiple
charges of Medicaid fraud in an alleged scheme that netted $160,000.
Vivian Mundy is charged with six counts of making false claims to Medicaid and one count each of obstructing a Medicaid fraud investigation and concealing records.
Concerns about billing at Mundy's Cognitive Care Connection led to an 18-month investigation by the Kansas Attorney General's Office. Records show there were initially 21 cases in which Mundy was paid twice for services, but investigators found that 74 documents were changed.
There were also more than 500 cases where Medicaid was billed for overlapping services and nearly 600 cases in which Medicaid was billed without allowing for travel time.
Mundy's preliminary hearing is set for June 10.
