Attorney General: Speech Language Pathologist Arrested for Medicaid Fraud

Geny Noble Lima, a Palm Beach speech language pathologist, was arrested for allegedly attempting to
defraud the Medicaid program out of more than $459,000, the office of Attorney General Pam Bondi announced.

Lima, 61, was charged with grand theft and Medicaid fraud, both first-degree felonies.

Investigators with the attorney generals Medicaid Fraud Control Unit claim Lima, owner of Lima Therapy Group of Palm Beach Inc., allowed speech language assistants to provide unsupervised speech therapy to Medicaid recipients, many of whom were children. Lima would then bill the Medicaid program for the services, which is a violation of program rules.

Over a five-year period, Lima billed more than $459,000 and was paid more than $214,000 by the Agency for Health Care Administration.

Lima faces up to $1.5 million in fines and 60 years in prison.
