Doctor Gets 10 Years for Fraud

An osteopath has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for his role in a $10 million health care fraud. He admitted he fraudulently billed insurers for services the clinic never actually rendered, including physical therapy and psychotherapy, and required patients to attend these bogus appointments in order to receive Schedule II controlled substance prescriptions. On multiple occasions, he billed as though he’d provided more than 100 hours of work in a single, 24-hour day. Read a news story and a Department of Justice press release.
