A Mount Airy woman who pleaded guilty to Medicaid fraud will face up to five years in prison.

Elizabeth Ann Imhoff, 55, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a single count of Medicaid fraud. She is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 15, when she could be fined up to $100,000 and be ordered to serve time in prison.

Authorities said Imhoff, who cared for her paraplegic son, submitted false claims to the Maryland Medical Assistance Program between January 2014 and January 2016, according to a news release from the Office of the Attorney General.

She claimed to be looking after her son while she was on vacation in Florida and while she was working in Virginia.

An attorney listed as representing Imhoff, Terrence R. Decker, did not return a call for comment Friday.
