Washington D.C. Mental Health Therapist Indicted for Fraud, Theft in Medicaid Scheme

A mental health therapist in Washington D.C. has been indicted by a grand jury for 20 alleged crimes including felony fraud and first-degree theft for allegedly stealing more than $263,000 from the city’s Medicaid program through fraudulent claims, Keith L. Alexander reports for the Washington Post. From September 2020 through January 2023, Bridgette White-Chase, who operated Chase Counseling and Consulting Services and was licensed by D.C. Health to provide professional counseling services, submitted claims for psychiatric services she did not provide and overcharges for what services she did render. In a recent interview, she said the charges against her are “not true” and are based on false accusations made by disgruntled former employees. She pleaded not guilty at her Superior Court arraignment Wednesday and was released to await a trial.
