Health Care Fraud
Two Detroit area doctors have been charged with the illegal distribution of prescription drugs and health care fraud, according to a 68-count superseding indictment unsealed this week.
The U.S. Justice Department says a woman who worked for Detroit medical service companies has pleaded guilty in a $24 million Medicare home health care fraud scheme.
“This doctor exposed patients to electrical currents for neurological testing solely to generate money for himself at the expense of the Medicare program,” U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said.
A physician facing prison for her role in a Detroit Public Schools corruption case is accused of submitting Medicare claims for patients who already were dead.
