NEW ORLEANS—Jacqueline Evans Segura, age 41, a resident of Mandeville, Louisiana, pleaded guilty to a one-count bill of information for health care fraud, announced U.S. Attorney Jim Letten.

Segura was employed as an office manager at a medical practice in Covington, Louisiana, owned and operated by a local plastic surgeon and a general surgeon. The bill of information charged that Segura used the online payroll system of the clinic to deposit unauthorized paychecks into her account, that she routinely kept cash payments instead of depositing them into the account of the clinic, that she added unauthorized telephone lines to the clinic’s mobile phone service account for her personal use, and that she used the physicians’ personal credit card to make unauthorized telephone and online purchases for her personal use.
