Houston doctor loses license for fraud

A 42 year-old Houston doctor will serve nearly six years in prison after pleading guilty to Medicare and Medicaid fraud.

The man, who would repair varicose veins, surrendered his license to the Texas Medical Board during the investigation. Prosecutors claim that, from 2005 to 2007, he submitted claims that said he repaired more veins than he actually did. This led to fraudulent billing, which allowed him to receive the highest reimbursement rates.

He will serve five years for one count of conspiracy and concurrently serve seventy months for three counts of mail fraud. The former doctor must also pay back the $3.8 million to the government.

TMB revokes psychiatrist’s license

A 51 year-old San Antonio psychiatrist has lost his license after the Texas Medical Board discovered he opened a joint checking account with one of his patients. This revocation comes more than two years after he was reprimanded for having a sexual relationship with another patient.

The board says the physician overstepped his boundaries with the patient. It says also claims it found that he had prescribed opiates to the patient, who has a history of drug abuse and was being treated for psychotic thoughts and bipolar disorder.

In 2009, the board charged him a $10,000 fine for a similar violation: prescribing a patient controlled substances without reviewing her medical history. The woman had previously been a drug abuser and was in therapy for depression and suicidal thoughts. She is the same patient with whom he continued a sexual relationship with while treating her.
