MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – A former clinic worker in Alabama has pleaded guilty for her participation in a scheme authorities say defrauded the state’s Medicaid agency of at least $1.5 million.

Authorities, including U.S. Attorney Prim Escalona and Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, said Wednesday in a news release that Heidi Elizabeth Robertson entered her plea on one count of conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud.

The release says the 35-year-old was the primary biller for Capstone Medical Resources LLC.

Officials say Robertson submitted Medicaid claims for services the clinic said were provided to individuals and at-risk youth.

Authorities say the clinic’s owner gave her 10% commission on all the claims paid by Medicaid.
