Alabama physician admits role in $28M healthcare fraud conspiracy 

An Alabama physician has agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud, according to the Justice Department.  

Eric Beck, MD, 63, operated the Huntsville-based Valley Center for Nerve Studies and Rehabilitation, according to an April 8 Justice Department news release. Federal authorities said Dr. Beck conspired with the owner of QBR, a Huntsville-based testing company, to bill insurers for electro-diagnostic testing that its technicians performed, regardless of whether there was a medical need for them.

The Justice Department said health insurers were billed more than $28 million for the unnecessary testing QBR performed.

Dr. Beck faces up to five years in prison.
