A North Idaho personal care provider was convicted of Medicaid fraud and will serve 45 days in jail and pay $12,465 back to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (DHW).

Coral Mouser of Bonners Ferry pled guilty in May to telling the Idaho Medicaid Program that she provided care to some clients in their homes that she did not provide.  Her case was investigated by the Idaho attorney general’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

Medicaid, which makes up more than half of DHW’s annual budget, provides medical services to more than 200,000 children and adults in Idaho who are poor, disabled, elderly, or meet other program requirements.  The federal government pays for the majority of Idaho’s Medicaid spending.
