A Dallas-area woman must serve nearly five years in federal prison in a Medicaid scam over false claims using the names of legitimate counselors.
Brenda Ward of Cedar Hill was sentenced Friday in Dallas. The 48-year-old Ward in July pleaded guilty to health care fraud in a scam since 2009.
Court documents indicate Ward, who’s not a psychotherapist or a mental health provider, was president and CEO of H.E.L.P.-Ing. Communities Inc.
