1 min read

BERLIN — Kayla MacArthur, 29, of Berlin, New Hampshire, pleaded guilty in court on Wednesday to theft by unauthorized taking.

MacArthur is a former employee of Regency Home Health, a home health care company.

Between December 21, 2021, and September 30, 2022, MacArthur knowingly represented she was providing needed services to a New Hampshire Medicaid member when in fact she was not providing such services.

By doing so, MacArthur caused New Hampshire Medicaid to incorrectly pay Regency Home Health $1,300.

She was sentenced to serve ninety days in the Merrimack County House of Corrections, fully suspended for one year on the condition that she pay a $1,300 fine, pay $1,300 in restitution to the State of New Hampshire, and serve 100 hours of community service.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Thomas T. Worboys and Attorney Eric S. Monty of the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit prosecuted this case.
