The state and federal governments reached a joint settlement resolving allegations that a Waterford psychologist submitted false claims for behavioral health services she never provided to her Connecticut Medicaid patients, Attorney General George Jepsen and Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) Commissioner Roderick L. Bremby. Dr. Arlene Werner, a licensed psychologist and owner and sole practitioner of a private psychology practice, will pay $126,760.09 and has been suspended from participation in the Connecticut Medical Assistance Program (CMAP) – which includes the state’s Medicaid program – for a period of two years. The state and federal governments alleged that, from January 2011 to July 2016, Dr. Werner submitted false claims to the CMAP for psychotherapy services that were not provided to her CMAP patients.
