Medicaid fraud lands provider behind bars

A personal care provider in Bonners Ferry has received a five-year prison term and a $5,000 fine for Medicaid provider fraud, though a 1st District judge suspended the sentence and ordered Coral Mouser to serve 45 days in jail and pay $12,465 in restitution to the state Department of Health and Welfare. Mouser pleaded guilty in May, admitting submitting progress notes on care for clients in their homes that she actually didn't provide, triggering fraudulent payments to her. The case was investigated by the Idaho Attorney General's Medicaid fraud control unit, and prosecuted by Deputy Attorney General Kendal McDevitt at the request of the Boundary County prosecutor.
