No Rest for Patrick Fitzgerald's Office

According to a press release here of the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Northern District of Illinois (USA Patrick Fitzgerald), an indictment was issued against a physician medical director for "allegedly defrauding Medicare of more than $875,000 by falsely claiming to have provided services that he never performed and billing for more complex services than he actually provided."  The indictment which charges violations of the health care fraud statute (sec. 1347), can be found here.
