Florida revokes psychologist Michael Hershorn's license following insurance fraud conviction
August 2, 2007
On August 2, 2007 the Florida Department of Health Board of Psychology revoked psychologist Michael Hershorn’s license. In April 2004, Mr. Hershorn pleaded No Contest to Grand Theft of the Second Degree and Grand Theft of the Third Degree in Broward County, Florida and was later sentenced to one year of probation. This theft was directly related to the practice of psychology in that it regarded fraudulent insurance claims Mr. Hershorn is alleged to have submitted to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida for treatments to patients that were never actually rendered.1
