FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (KAKE) -

A Leavenworth woman has been found guilty of Medicaid fraud and committing a computer crime.

A news release from Kansas' Attorney General says 53-year-old Ena Louise Mathis pleaded guilty last week to one felony count of Medicaid fraud and one felony count of committing a computer crime. 

An investigation revealed that Mathis had submitted false claims to the Medicaid program that was meant to pay for in-home assistance for times when beneficiaries are in a hospital or a resident in a nursing facility. 

It was determined that Mathis had falsely billed the Medicaid program between July 28, 2016 and January 31, 2017 for a total of $6,425 through an interactive computer system used by the program. 

A sentencing date has been scheduled for October 30.
