Authorities Say Texas Doctor Owes $148M For Ongoing Healthcare Fraud

After months of few developments, a federal judge set a date for the sentencing of Dr. Jorge Zamora Quezada, a rheumatologist convicted of healthcare fraud in January 2020.
The former physician is scheduled to be sentenced on April 28, though that is subject to change in the weeks leading up to the sentencing hearing.

Zamora Quezada, who owned the Center for Arthritis & Osteoporosis in Edinburg, was convicted on one count of conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud, seven counts of healthcare fraud and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice.

His conviction stemmed from allegations that he participated in a scheme to defraud health insurers by misdiagnosing with rheumatoid arthritis and over-treating patients.

Upon the doctor’s conviction, U.S. Judge Ricardo H. Hinojosa scheduled his sentencing for March 27, 2020.
