A psychologist, John R. Sink, and his wife, Diane Sink, pled guilty to making false statements to Wyoming Medicaid. According to the plea, between 2012 and 2016, the Sinks submitted over $6.2 million in claims for group therapy, knowing that the activities provided and billed for did not qualify as group therapy. In addition, the hours billed did not accurately report the time each Medicaid beneficiary was actively participating in any activities, and the Sinks were not using up-to-date treatment plans to guide each Medicaid beneficiaries treatment as required by Wyoming Medicaid.
