June 26, 2014

Kammy McDonald, age 43, of Winooski, Vermont, was convicted on June 24, 2014, in the Windsor Criminal Division of the Vermont Superior Court, of five misdemeanor counts of False Pretenses. The convictions stemmed from Ms. McDonald’s submission of false timesheets in order to obtain payment for services that were not provided to an adult with physical disabilities enrolled in the Choices for Care program. Ms. McDonald claimed that she was providing personal care services in the disabled adult’s home when, in fact, she was working at a convenience store.

Ms. McDonald was sentenced to two-and-a-half to five years in jail, all suspended, and placed on two years of probation subject to certain standard and special conditions, including 200 hours of community service. Ms. McDonald was also ordered to pay $14,537 in restitution to the Vermont Medicaid program.

The case was investigated and prosecuted by the Medicaid Fraud & Residential Abuse Unit within the Vermont Attorney General’s Office, with assistance from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General.
