TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the Daytona Police Department today arrested a Flagler County resident for more than $2,000 in Medicaid fraud.

Marsh allegedly billed for services performed at times the recipient traveled out of town or was with family. Additionally, Marsh’s service logs reflect some of the same dates and times Marsh worked at a school as a teacher’s aide.
Marsh is charged with one count of Medicaid provider fraud, a third-degree felony. If convicted, Marsh faces up to five years in prison, fines and restitution. The Attorney General’s Office will prosecute this case through an agreement with the State Attorney’s Office for the Seventh Judicial Circuit.
