Six Nevada doctors pay to settle Medicare fraud claims

Compliance Monitor, October 22, 2008

Six Las Vegas area doctors agreed to collectively pay over $600,000 for their role in a Medicare fraud scheme, according to a report issued by KTNV, a Las Vegas news station.
 
The six doctors, Robert Shreck, MD, Tony Q.F. Chin, MD, Craig M. Jorgensen, MD, Wen Liang, MD, Mohammed Najmi, MD, and Edmund Pasimio, MD, allegedly referred patients to a nurse practitioner, Greg Martin, for medically unnecessary procedures.
 
Martin allegedly billed Medicare for the procedures and, upon receiving payment, split the amount with the referring physician.
