Pair sentenced for cheating on Medicaid

A husband and wife from Randallstown were each sentenced in Baltimore County Circuit Court to two years in prison for submitting thousands of false claims to the Maryland Medicaid program, the state attorney general's office said.

Tammy D. Smith, 39, and Anthony Smith, 40, of the 4200 block of Huntshire Road also were ordered at sentencing last week to pay more than $780,000 in restitution to the state Medicaid program, according to court documents.

Tammy Smith, a licensed social worker, and her husband, who handled her billing, submitted false claims to the Maryland Medicaid program from 2000 to 2003 for therapy services that were not performed or were different from the services that were billed, state prosecutors said.
