LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas’ attorney general says a Crittenden County woman has pleaded guilty to Medicaid fraud.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel says 34-year-old Elaina Brewer of Marion pleaded guilty Monday to a felony count of Medicaid fraud. A Pulaski County judge sentenced Brewer to two years of probation and ordered her to pay a $5,530 fine and $1,843 in restitution. She also must undergo random drug tests.

Brewer was arrested in October 2013 after investigators found she billed the Arkansas Medicaid Program for attendant-care services she did not provide.

Brewer was contracted by Crittenden Adult Care Services to provide personal assistance to Medicaid beneficiaries who need help with their daily needs. Brewer submitted billing claims to Medicaid stating she had performed personal care services for a Medicaid beneficiary that allegedly were not performed.
