One fish, two fish, red fish, you're busted: Psychiatrist Dr. Suess indicted for Medicaid fraud

December 26, 2011

Lawrence Suess has been charged with 14 counts of medicaid fraud following an investigation of his billing practices.

Seuss owns and operates out of the Western Kentucky Center for Psychiatric Medicine.

The indictment alleges that Doctor Suess intentionally submitted false claims to Medicaid by claiming he provided individual therapy sessions that paid at higher rate than the sessions he actually performed between January of 2005 and September of 2007.

Doctor Seuss is scheduled to appear in a Hopkins County court on January 10th.  He could face up to 70 years in prision if convicted.
