An Illinois personal assistant, Betsy Gutowski, has pleaded guilty to filing fraudulent Medicaid reimbursement claims for work purportedly performed for a client under the Home Services Program, which is designed to keep clients out of nursing homes and in their own homes. At the time of the fraud, which spanned the year 2012, the client was in fact hospitalized or living in a nursing home, yet Gutowski billed for and received payments totaling $4,036.73. She now faces a possible maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. USAO SDIL
