Doctor Charged in Connection with Billing Fraud

November 16, 2020

An investigation showed a physician specializing in pain management and anesthesia engaged in various forms of billing fraud. For example, it showed he billed insurance plans for more than 24 hours’ worth of services in a one-day period of time on more than 900 occasions between 2014 and 2020. Individuals interviewed said he commonly saw them for only very brief periods of time and he often did not perform any medical exams or evaluations. They also said there sometimes were no medical equipment or examination tables in the rooms at the clinics and that patients sometimes met with providers on folding chairs in the hallways of the clinics.
