An former Upstate medical office employee was sentenced to two years in prison on Tuesday after evidence confirmed she filed multiple prescriptions in the names of a doctor and her children and had Medicaid pay for them.

Per the U.S. Attorney, 41-year-old Felicia L. Prysock of Wellford was sentenced to two years and one day in prison for aggravated identity theft and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.

The investigation revealed that Prysock filed 10 prescriptions for schedule II opiods, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, and Adderall and had Medicaid pay for them. The conduct occurred between July 2016 and April 2017.

Chief Judge Terry L. Wooten ordered restitution to Medicaid of $1,132.12.

Prysock is a former employee of Pediatric Associates of Spartanburg. A spokesperson for the Greenville Health System said Prysock was terminated in March 2016.
