Woman gets 2 years in painkiller scheme

Originally published March 9, 2006

A 28-year-old Anne Arundel County woman was sentenced to more than two years in prison yesterday for her role in a scheme to obtain prescription painkillers illegally.

Elizabeth Kiss of Glen Burnie pleaded guilty last month to health care fraud for accumulating more than 40 prescriptions under false pretenses and to possession with intent to distribute OxyContin.

Federal prosecutors said Kiss visited several physicians, each time requesting pain medication for reflex sympathetic dystrophy.

With the prescriptions, she bought large amounts of OxyContin, using more than $4,000 in Maryland Medicaid funds, authorities said.
