Connecticut physician sentenced in $5M billing fraud case

A Connecticut physician was sentenced March 18 to more than seven years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of healthcare fraud and one count of money laundering in September 2018, according to the Department of Justice.

According to court documents, Ramil Mansourov, MD, billed Medicaid for medical treatment that was never provided. Between 2014 and November 2016, he submitted claims to Medicaid totaling nearly $5 million for home, nursing home and office visits that never occurred.

In addition to the prison term, Dr. Mansourov was ordered to pay $5 million in restitution, forfeit $50,000 and surrender his federal controlled substances registration to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
