Eye Clinic Owner Convicted

January 18, 2018

A federal jury convicted a woman of 29 counts of health care fraud for filing fraudulent claims for optometry and ophthalmology services that were never provided to patients. Despite being previously excluded from Medicare and Medicaid, she operated under a new eye service company. She targeted advertising toward senior citizens and disabled populations in housing complexes and community centers, offering on-site eye exams and prescription glasses at no charge to patients on Medicare and Medicaid.
