A mansion that belonged to a Tarrant County doctor and his wife burned down in 2017 when the couple tried to destroy evidence of their multi-million-dollar healthcare fraud scheme, federal authorities say.
Mark and Melissa Kuper were indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud on July 17. They were arrested and pleaded not guilty in court on Monday, according to court records.
Mark Kuper operated the Texas Center for Orthopedic and Spinal Disorders, which had two clinics in Fort Worth and Weatherford. While he started as a surgeon, he changed his practice to an unregistered pain management clinic in 2014, according to court records.
