 Thursday, November 17, 2016

A Florida man has been charged in connection with his role in establishing fake medical facilities in New Jersey and billing insurance companies for services that were never performed, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced. From September 2014 through June 26, 2015, the defendants allegedly established fictitious health service providers in Union County, New Jersey, and elsewhere. These “phantom providers” repeatedly submitted false claims to insurance companies for medical services, including injections and physical therapy services, that were never actually performed. They allegedly submitted claims for more than $6 million and the insurance companies paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to the phantom providers.
