Iowa board revokes nurse’s license for $5 million Medicare-fraud scheme

The state of Iowa has revoked the license of a nurse convicted of conspiring to steal $5 million from the taxpayer-funded Medicare program.

According to state records, Mark Hill, 55, who currently lives in Laurel, Mississippi, was first licensed to practice nursing in Iowa in July 2017.

In September 2020, Hill was indicted in Montana for conspiracy to commit health care fraud. Prosecutors alleged that from October 2017 through April 2019, Hill provided telehealth consultations with patients for Integrated Support Plus Inc., a telemedicine company located in Florida.

As a Montana-licensed nurse practitioner, Hill allegedly collected bribes from various medical-equipment suppliers in exchange for prescription orders for their products. Many of those prescriptions were not based on any sort of patient examination and sometimes involved no patient interaction at all.
