Webster County Woman Convicted of Health Care Fraud

Angela McCracken owes more than $24,000 in restitution.

A Webster County woman will have to pay back nearly $25,000 dollars after being convicted of health care fraud.
Angela McCracken, of Cowen, falsified documents, which caused Medicaid to pay her for services she did not perform, according to a news released from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.

She was convicted of health care fraud and was order to repay $24,493.60 in restitution, officials said. McCracken had a one to 10 year prison sentence suspended, but will spend five years on probation, officials also said.

She worked as a residential habilitation service provider, who helped low income and developmentally disabled patients.

The case was investigated by the DHHR's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and prosecuted in Greenbrier County Circuit Court.

If you have information on possible health care fraud, you can report it by calling 1-888-FRAUD WV.

And yet people have done a lot less and are spending a long time in prison. Can anyone explain this to me. Even the fact that she lives on Coon Creek and the case wasn't even held in her own county. Whats up with that?

don't you people know by now? money talks bulshit walks. it's who you know and who you blow. my baby girl is sitting in jail a year now cause a girl left 2 pills in her car when she was pulled over on a minor traffic offense, but it violated her probation which was for something equally as minor and stupid. she's facing a 2-10 already had her rights terminated to her two beautiful girls she adores,would die for, and she probably will, never knew a moment of neglect or abuse. i'd say it's time to wake up webster co you're constitutional rights are a thing of the past and unless you're an absolute saint, there's a man on the bench over there in webster that "does as he pleases in his court" and God help you if he pleases to stick it to you. just saying.

I don't want to post her name to give the powers that be more amo to cause her more harm, she'll soon be 28. anyway the post isn't about her i was just using our situation to make a point. the justice system is upside down look who gets away with the most haneous crimes and look who gets punished for a sentence that truly doesn't fit the crime. if this corruption isn't stopped we'll not just lose this generation but the next.

So, don't tell me she pled guilty? What do you expect?! Try a jury trial. But you hafta pay for at least a half ass trial attorney. But, with the exception of the State Police the local police will F/U. With testing or evidentiary protocol. But please, I only had 2 beers, a friend left that in my car, I don't know why there are pot seeds in my ashtray. You are in DENIAL. And can't spell worth shit either. Buncha neanderthals.

The cops out there are gonna appreciate ma humor. If not, go back and train some more. If you're no good at giving testimony then all the other work was a waste of time. Ask Rich or Ed.

Insider information

She claimed time for when her severely handicapped children were with their father.(Who doesn't pay Child support) She is a single mother. And BC of her children's medical condition ( they have cerebral palsy and are severely mentally retarted with autism) she is unable to have a job outside the home so the state would pay her to care for her children. Since she cannot obviously clock hours 24/7 for the actual time providing care, she claimed the hours when the kids were with their father to make up the hours that she already cared for them.( instead of saying she cared for them on such n such day for the full 24hrs... Which she did everyday.. She would split the time. Saying she watched them on a Monday for 12hrs and then on Tuesday for 12hrs. Trying to evenly spread out her max allotment of hours allowed to be claimed. But she would claim care on days they were with their father. So although she actually worked all the hours she claimed.. She shouldn't have claimed on days that they weren't home to evenly distribute the hours.) she also had a Seneca worker do the same thing named Sandy Nutter, who asked for immunity in order to testify against Angela. Sandy got off Scott free. Angela pled guilty and paid back her full $25,000+(Within less than 6months by mortgaging her home) and was on parol but was released after 2yrs. Also.. She had a legal aid lawyer (free state attorney anyone can get) So she did not "buy" her way out of it. She did own up to her mistake and paid for it in more ways than one. And those.. For the inquiring minds wanting to know.. Are the FACTS of what happened.
