Chastity Nicole Baxman of Otter Creek was arrested on Feb. 6 by the Florida Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the Levy County Sheriff's Office on a charge of filing a false Medicaid claim.
Her arrest is the fourth Levy County resident in recent weeks on charges related to claims made in the state's Medicaid program. Her bond is $90,000.
A spokesman for the AG's office said in an email that Baxman received more than $29,000 for claims submitted to Florida's Medicaid program for services she never provided.
Baxman faces up to 15 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
