We present a search for neutral Higgs bosons decaying into b-bbar, produced in association with b-quarks in p-pbar collisions. This process could be observable in supersymmetric models with high values of tan(beta).  We search for an enhancment in the mass of the two lead jets in triply b-tagged events, using 980/pb of data collected with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The dijet mass spectrum of the heavy flavor multi-jet background is derived from double-tagged data in a manner that accounts for tagging biases and kinematic differences introduced by the addition of the third tag.  We set mass-dependent limits on sigma x BR and tan(beta) in MSSM models.
