Corinna Counselor Pleads Guilty to Defrauding MaineCare Using Falsified Treatment Records

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Maine

BANGOR, Maine: A Corinna woman pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Bangor today to false statements involving a health care benefit program. 

According to court records, between April and December 2020, April McKinney, known professionally as April Taylor, 46, falsified appointment details and session notes in therapy service records. McKinney used the falsified records to bill and receive funds from MaineCare. MaineCare is funded primarily by the federal government which pays approximately two-thirds of all reimbursed claims. The deceitful act of submitting falsified information led to the misuse of taxpayer dollars through reimbursements higher than warranted by any actual patient care given.

 McKinney faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. She will be sentenced after the completion of a presentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.

The FBI investigated the case.
