Oxford podiatrist accused of $3.8M fraud

Jul. 20—OXFORD — An Oxford doctor has been arrested after being accused of playing a role in fleecing $3.8 million from the United States and health care benefits programs.

Podiatrist M. Shaun Lund, 53, was arrested on July 15 after a grand jury handed down a nine-count indictment, which included seven counts of health care fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States. He was released the same day on an unsecured $10,000 bond. The only conditions of his release was to surrender his passport and not break any laws.

According to court documents, Lund ran “The Foot Doctor,” a podiatry clinic with an in-house pharmacy that he used to prescribe foot bath medications and to order molecular diagnostic testing. The indictment says Lund and his co-conspirators fraudulently billed insurance companies — including Medicare and TRICARE, which provides benefits to U.S. military personnel, retirees and their families.
