Florida arrested two Panama City mental health counselors for allegedly defrauding the Florida Medicaid program out of more than $360,000. The investigation revealed that Laurie Lynne Kidd, 54, who has a doctorate in psychology, hired Courtney Ann Hill, 27, to provide individual and group therapy to assisted living facilities. Hill is an unlicensed and unqualified employee and allegedly submitted false reports claiming that Hill provided therapy to the residents, when, in fact the defendant did not. Kidd billed Medicaid for the services never rendered as if Kidd herself performed the services. Kidd allegedly submitted more than $400,000 in fraudulent claims and received more than $360,000 from the Florida Medicaid program due to the fraudulent claims. Hill is allegedly responsible for $99,000 of Kidd’s fraudulent claims. FL
