Wife of Texas Doctor arrested for fraud faces charges now, too

Legal problems are piling up fast for a Texas family about six hours south of Houston. A McAllen doctor was arrested back in May on suspicions that he is part of a $240 million health care fraud and international money laundering scheme.

A few days ago, his wife was arrested for conspiracy to commit health care fraud, according to news reports.

Federal prosecutors claim in court documents that she submitted “false and fraudulent claims to health care benefit programs, including Medicare, based on patients who were false diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and other degenerative diseases.”
