From Fierce Healthcare:
An Oregon man who was practice manager at his father’s eye clinic was sentenced to jail this week for falsely billing insurers and tax fraud.
Anthony C. Neal, 41, was sentenced by an Oregon District Court judge to one year and one day in federal prison, followed by three years of probation, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon. He pleaded guilty last year to engaging in a seven-year healthcare fraud scheme and conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
In his sentencing this week, he was ordered to pay over $1.7 million to Medicare, Care Oregon and several private health insurance companies and $817,378 to the IRS.
