Waterford psychologist pays $126K to settle allegations regarding false claims


A Waterford psychologist will pay to settle allegations of false claim violations.

Arlene Werner, PhD., has entered into a civil settlement agreement with the federal and state governments and has paid more than $126,000 to resolve allegations that she violated the federal and state False Claims Acts.

Werner is a licensed psychologist in the Connecticut and is the owner of a private psychology practice in Waterford. 

It is alleged that Werner billed Medicaid for psychotherapy services that were not provided, and that she also billed Medicaid for family psychotherapy sessions when the billing should have been for individual services.

Werner has paid $126,760.09 in order to reimburse the Medicaid program, which covers conduct from January 2011 to July 2016.

People who suspect health care fraud are encouraged to report it by calling 1-800-HHS-TIPS or the Health Care Fraud Task Force at (203) 777-6311.
