Social worker Kimberly Drzal is kicked out of Medicaid program following fraud conviction
June 22, 2012
On January 20, 2012, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General issued an exclusion on licensed social worker Kimberly Drzal of Ohio.
An exclusion means that one is no long permitted to provide services to patients under Medicaid and Medicare nor to received reimbursements for such services.
The reason given was that Drzal was convicted of Medicaid fraud.
A Consent ordered issued in January 2011 by the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, Marriage & Family Therapist Board states that Drzal was found guilty in August 2010 of theft of $1870.00 in funds belonging to residents of the nursing home where she worked.
The Board accepted the surrender of her social worker license.
