Investigation continues in a case of health care fraud out of Detroit involving a physician who has pleaded guilty to putting patients through unnecessary treatments in order to be able to submit fraudulent insurance claims. The main doctor targeted thus far has pleaded guilty to 13 counts of health care fraud, as well as other charges. Now, eight other physicians have been implicated in the case.
According to authorities, the eight other physicians knew about the fraudulent activity but failed to report it. For that, the physicians are suspects for conspiracy. Already, multiple civil cases have been filed for medical malpractice in connection with the fraud, including several hospitals.
