Wyoming Psychologist Pleads Guilty to Health Care Fraud
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A 57-year-old Wyoming psychologist has pleaded guilty to health care fraud in a plea agreement with federal prosecutors.
Gibson Condie of Powell entered his plea Friday to one count of health care fraud before U.S. District Judge Alan Johnson in Cheyenne. Johnson ordered a presentence investigation and set sentencing for Jan. 8.
Condie remains free until his sentencing after the judge determined he was not a flight risk or a danger.
Condie had been accused of submitting about $6.8 million in fraudulent bills to Wyoming Medicaid. He was originally indicted on 234 counts of fraud.
The plea agreement calls for Condie to serve three years in prison and pay about $2.3 million in restitution.
Condie and his attorney declined comment after the hearing.
