AG Files Charges Against Guthrie Company (Jun 19, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma attorney general's office has filed Medicaid fraud charges against several employees of a Guthrie-based counseling service.

Charges were lodged against several workers at the Pure Hope Corporation for their alleged involvement in a scheme to bill for sessions without providing services.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt says four counts of Medicaid fraud have been filed against 26-year-old licensed professional counselor Bobby Harlan Long who is executive director and owner of Pure Hope. Pruitt says charges were also filed against four other workers -including a clinical psychologist.

Long allegedly billed the Oklahoma Health Care Authority $22,318 for services provided between June and October. Pure Hope clients and the parents or guardians of underage clients say no counseling occurred on some dates when Pure Hope billed the OHCA.
