Feds nail 5 for alleged white collar crimes exceeding $17 million

Following a federal investigation, five people in the medical world were recently arrested. The special agent of the Inspector General's Office in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service says the five people are trusted health care professionals, typically expected to provide patients nationwide, including Michigan, with quality medical services. The white collar crimes charges they face range from health care fraud to fentanyl theft.

A 63-year-old anesthesiologist is accused of prescribing unnecessary prescription drugs and diagnostic tests and ordering medical equipment in exchange for kickbacks. Court records show that this alleged scheme involved $17.4 million. The charges against her include health care fraud and conspiracy to commit health care fraud.

A 31-year-old registered nurse pleaded guilty to stealing synthetic opioids from the Nassau University Medical Center while working there. A licensed neurologist allegedly filed over 3,000 fraudulent Medicaid claims for alleged podiatry and home health visits. The final pair is a 60-year-old pharmacist accused of a repeat crime of health care fraud, along with a 58-year-old owner of two pharmacies who allegedly filed Medicaid and Medicare claims for prescriptions that were not dispensed.

Individuals in Michigan who are accused of white collar crimes all have the right to retain the services of legal counsel, and that is probably what these medical professionals did. Regardless of whether they plead guilty or choose to go to trial, the support, guidance and advocacy of an experienced New York criminal defense attorney are crucial. A lawyer will do whatever is necessary to secure the best possible outcome for each defendant.
