BATON ROUGE - State Attorney General Buddy Caldwell says two personal care attendants have been booked with Medicaid fraud for filing false claims.

Caldwell said in a news release that 46-year-old Sybil M. Mashia, of Destrehan, surrendered on Thursday and 36-year-old Christi L. Moore, of Schriever, surrendered for arrest on Monday. Both were booked with one count of Medicaid fraud.

Mashia and Moore are accused of submitting false timesheets to their employer, a personal care services agency in LaPlace, claiming to be providing personal care services to Medicaid patients at the patients' homes even though the patients were actually hospitalized at the time.

Personal care attendants are hired by Medicaid providers to care for physically handicapped and/or elderly Medicaid recipients.
