TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A south-central Kansas woman has been sentenced to a month in prison and ordered to repay about $50,000 after being convicted of health care fraud.

The office of Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a release Tuesday that 46-year-old Lupe Adela Mains of Pretty Prairie also has to serve 13 months in community confinement. She was sentenced Monday.

Mains was accused of receiving Medicaid and other benefits intended for the care of her disabled sister.

The attorney general's office says the case was investigated by its Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Division with assistance from the U.S. Railroad Retirement Board.
