Good Morning..

 With all this talk about Medicaid being over budget and the Governor putting a hold on them until they get it fixed, I beg you to give my story a look. I believe my local Department of Social Services and my caseworker, Vicki Daniels made serious mistakes and I am paying a huge price for it. I am paying the state right about $34 grand and I know its not my fault. However I think instead of them saying they messed up.. It was way easier to blame me. I am not certain I didn't make a mistake but with my lack of adequate counsel, flat out denial of records that belong to me, and a corrupt system, I was unable to prove my case. Fear is what motivated me and they knew it and preyed upon it. I am willing to accept responsibility for my actions but I think its unfair for me to accept responsibility for all parties involved. This will not go away, I'm in it for over 5 years probation and I will get whoever involved to get my story and case out there. I have made it my mission....

My name is Lauren Hennrich and I'll be the first to admit I have done a few things that I am not proud of, but the one thing I do very well is my job as Mom. I am a single mother of a wonderful daughter Mikayla who just turned 10. She’s a 4th grader that suffers from a handful of disabilities that make it very difficult for her to maintain a "normal" childhood. She is socially unable to be around kids her age, she has suffered greatly with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, as well as possibly having Oppositional Defiant Disorder These problems were apparent as early as 2 in her and her whole life I have made it my mission to find her the very best care. Being that her father is useless, she has been receiving Medicaid for her whole life and now that she has SSI disability, she’s eligible for Medicaid every month.

I married her stepfather in 2002 and we separated in 2003, from 2003-2010, I was not living with him and did not include his income on our Medicaid Applications as I’m not required to do. However in 2011 I was called into the Program Integrity office by Doreen Pearson and told that I was going to be charged with Medicaid Fraud and would have to repay a total of 34 THOUSAND dollars!!! They refused to show me the bills they stated they paid and took me to court. By this time I was just plain terrified I would go to jail, which would leave Mikayla with no mother, making her PTSD way worse. My lawyer (court appointed of course) did nothing to verify this amount even after I told him it was very wrong and was more concerned with getting my case done than helping me fight it. I was ultimately charged with Fraud, put on felony probation for 5 years and have to pay back the total amount. That’s $580 a month for 5 years!!!

 I am hoping that somehow, somewhere, someone can help me with this. Im not trying to get out of anything I might have done wrong, but I am hoping that this figure can be reduced somehow so that this payment isn't so high and my daughter and I aren't in constant fear of prison. I truly appreciate you taking the time to read this and I hope that there is something you can do to help me. 

Sincerely

Lauren Hennrich
