Such was the case earlier this week, when I read an article on this site entitled “Top Prescriber Of Adult Diapers in NY Charged.” It discussed a New Jersey physician and a New York physical therapist that were found guilty in a $30-million scheme to defraud Medicare and Medicaid.
Both were convicted, after a six-week trial, of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud, as well as conspiracy to make false statements and substantive offenses of health care fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. The case centered around improperly representing ownership of a group of unlicensed medical clinics, as well as defrauding the government out of more than $30 million for items and services not medically necessary or were not even provided.
