LAS VEGAS (Las Vegas Sun) -- A Las Vegas woman was sentenced today to pay more than $26,000 in restitution and other costs for her role in a Medicaid fraud scheme.

District Court Judge Kathleen Delaney found Isidora DeGuzman, 53, guilty of Medicaid fraud and ordered her to pay $6,822 in restitution and $20,000 in investigation and prosecution costs.

DeGuzman worked as the manager of Joy Mobility and Medical Supplies, a company that delivers medical equipment to Medicaid recipients and then is reimbursed by Medicaid, Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto said.

An Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit discovered that the company claimed it delivered more products or more expensive products to its clients than it actually did. Medicaid would then pay the company based on the fraudulent information, Masto said.

The investigation started in January 2009, after the fraud unit uncovered a separate medical equipment company that fraudulently billed Medicaid using stolen patient information from Joy Mobility and Medical Supplies.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
