Attorney General Josh Kaul announced today charges against 62 year old Lori Kleinhans of Sheboygan County, in connection with alleged schemes to defraud Medicaid both as a provider and recipient of Medicaid benefits.
The investigation was conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ). According to the criminal complaint, Kleinhans was a nurse that consistently billed Medicaid for twelve hours of work per day for providing in-home care to a frail toddler in the summer of 2018.
Surveillance camera footage, however, shows that Kleinhans was rarely at the toddler’s residence to provide care. Kleinhans also allegedly billed Medicaid for twelve hours of work per day while she attended a jury trial in 2017. During these alleged overbillings, Kleinhans received Medicaid benefits by reporting no income on her benefits renewal application.
