Covington Doctors’ Former Employee Sentenced In Fraud Case
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A Mandeville woman has been sentenced to 3½ years in prison after pleading guilty to health care fraud.
U.S. Attorney Jim Letten said Thursday that U.S. District Judge Mary Ann Vial Lemmon also ordered 41-year-old Jacqueline Evans Segura to repay $703,263 in restitution to the victims of her scheme.
Segura worked as an office manager at a medical practice in Covington. Letten’s office says Segura used the clinic’s online payroll system to deposit unauthorized paychecks into her account, routinely kept cash payments instead of depositing them into the clinic’s account, added unauthorized telephone lines to the clinic’s mobile phone service account for her personal use and used the physicians’ personal credit card to make unauthorized purchases.
