Wyoming Psychologist Sent to Prison for Health Care Fraud
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a Wyoming psychologist to three years in prison and ordered him to pay nearly $2.3 million in restitution for health care fraud.
U.S. District Judge Alan Johnson on Monday also imposed three years of supervised release after Gibson Condie, of Powell, serves his prison time.
Condie was originally accused of submitting about $6.8 million in fraudulent bills to Wyoming Medicaid between June 2012 and February 2016.
The prison sentence and restitution adhere to a plea agreement reached earlier despite more than 30 letters of support. Some letters note Condie's financial help to the community.
Condie says he is the type of man described in the letters. A prosecutor says much of the help Condie provided resulted from stealing the money from Medicaid.
