Virginia Doctor Pleads Guilty to $1.8 Million Health Care Fraud Scheme
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A Virginia doctor pleaded guilty today to his role in a $1.8 million health care fraud scheme to prescribe medically unnecessary compounded pain and scar creams and other expensive medications.
“Through his deceit and greed, Rosen exploited the trust placed in him as a medical professional to engage in an extensive scheme that defrauded health insurance programs out of $1.8 million,” said Raj Parekh, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “Instead of prescribing medications in an honest and lawful manner to help those in need, the defendant sold out his medical license and training, and will now become a convicted felon.”
