TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Attorney General Ashley Moody announced that a care provider was arrested for allegedly submitting more than $11,000 worth of fraudulent claims.

“This defendant, over the course of eight months, submitted false billing claims to the Medicaid program, causing a loss of thousands of taxpayer dollars,” Moody said. “My Medicaid Fraud Control Unit will now ensure she faces the consequences of her crimes.”

Kimberly Greene Byrd is accused of submitting fraudulent claims to the Agency for Persons with Disabilities, including billing for hours not worked.

The investigation says Byrd provided services to Medicaid recipients who needed help with daily living activities. Byrd submitted billing claims for hours not worked over the course of several months. She also submitted services logs that did not match the hours billed.

Byrd faces one count of Medicaid provider fraud, which is a second-degree felony. Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, with the assistance of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, arrested Byrd.
