Indian Woman Sentenced to 20 Years for Healthcare Fraud in U.S.

NEW YORK (TIP): Meera Sachdeva , a US Indian woman has been sentenced to 20 years in prison on charges of a multimillion-dollar healthcare fraud. She is also ordered to pay a penalty of more than 14 million dollars. Sachdeva, a native of Mississippi owned and operated Rose Cancer Center. She is charged with deceiving Medicare by submitting false claims for chemotherapy services, said US Attorney Gregory Davis in a statement, according to agency reports.

Sachdeva did billing for more drugs than she actually took from the suppliers, between the time period 2007- 2011. Her patients were misled and they thought they were receiving the same amount of drugs, as mentioned in the health care program. “The health care fraud perpetrated by the defendant was an abuse of public trust motivated by greed,” Davis said. “Our office takes quality of care concerns very seriously, and we will vigorously investigate any provider that shortchanges patients and steals from the Medicare Trust Fund”.
