Times-News: Assistant Coroner Admits to Medicaid Fraud

Posted By on Tue, Dec 10, 2013 at 9:45 AM

A public servant is expected to spend time behind bars and pay nearly $50,000 in resitution after pleading guilty to Medicaid fraud.

This morning's Twin Falls Times-News reports that when 40-year-old Shaiyene Anton is sentenced in Feburary, prosecutors will recommend that she serve up to five years on a charge of provider fraud and up to 10 years on a charge of grand theft. Law enforcement said that over the course of a decade, Anton billed for nearly $106,000 in mileage reimbursement while lying about taking Medicaid patients to and from appointments. But prosecutors learned that she was billing Medicaid on the same days as she was working as the Twin Falls County Assistant Coroner.

As part of a plea deal, prosecutors from the Idaho Attorney General’s Office dropped other charges of forgery, computer crime and obstructing an investigation.
