Muslim Doctor From New York Sentenced to 13 Years in Prison for $7 Million Medicare Scheme

Why do you think foreign doctors come here?

Because they can’t make that kind of illegal money anywhere else.

People need to look at the EOB’s they get from their insurance carriers everytime they go to a doctor or have a procedure done to make sure your insurance carrier is not getting fraudulently billed.

These costs are passed onto you in the form of rate hikes.

Dr. Syed Imran Ahmed was sentenced to 13 years behind bars for bogus billing that reaped him millions.

Brooklyn Federal Judge Dora Irizarry administered the tough medicine Wednesday, ordering Ahmed, 51, to pay the feds more than $14 million in restitution and forfeiture, in addition to serving his prison time.

Prosecutors said Medicare paid the weight loss and wound treatment specialist $7 million for procedures, many of which he didn’t perform.

In some cases, the Long Island and Brooklyn-based surgeon claimed he performed 600 procedures on an elderly woman, according to the Daily News.

“Dr. Syed Ahmed treated Medicare like a personal piggy bank, stealing over $7.2 million by making fraudulent claims for medical procedures he never performed,” Interim Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue said in a statement.

Ahmed was convicted of one count of health care fraud, two counts of money laundering, and three counts of making false statements on health care matters in July 2016.

This is what the Government should be doing, going after these individuals that are out there abusing and taking advantage of all these programs. From Medicare, Medicaid, Daycare, Welfare, Food Stamps. In addition to the cheats, they have to go after the ones that are approving it for the cheats. That’s the number one issue right there.
