Woman indicted for Medicaid fraud; faces up to 35 years in prison

GREENVILLE —A 31-year-old Greenville woman has been indictment on seven counts of Medicaid fraud.

The attorney general’s office says Marguerite Wilson turned herself in to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office June 11 following indictment by a local grand jury.

In a news release, the attorney general’s office says Wilson was working as a case manager for Delta Community Mental Health Center when she allegedly submitted false claims for 2,346 units of service — each unit represents 15 minutes — and billed Medicaid for $34,908. The news release says the services are alleged to not actually have been rendered by Wilson as she was working elsewhere during the same hours.

If convicted, Wilson faces up to 35 years in prison and $350,000 in fines.

No court date has been announced.
