KATY, Texas – A woman from Katy was indicted after the U.S. Attorney’s Office says she used her therapist ex-husband’s Medicaid provider number to defraud more than $600,000 worth of unprovided counseling services as well as steal patient information.
Kay Le Farmer, 47, was arrested Wednesday and made her first appearance before a magistrate judge in the afternoon. This came after a federal grand jury returned a 22-count indictment on June 9, which was unsealed following her arrest.
According to court documents, Farmer was the former office manager for her ex-husband, a therapist, and Medicaid provider. After they separated, officials said Farmer used her ex-husband’s Medicaid provider number to submit fraudulent claims for counseling services that were never provided.
