Spokane woman admits to bilking Medicaid

A 55-year-old Spokane woman avoided jail but was ordered to repay $16,575 after admitting this week to bilking Medicaid.

Dea Ann Wagner's 30-day jail sentence was converted to 240 hours of community service. She'll be probation for a year, according to the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

Wagner pleaded guilty in Spokane County Superior Court to first-degree theft, second-degree theft and five counts of filing a false Medicaid statement.

The Attorney General’s Office says she charged full-time hours while working part-time, and falsely claimed specific chore were performed.
