NJ physician gets 3 years for $280k fraud scheme

Albert Ades, MD, of Englewood, N.J., has been sentenced to 37 months in prison for defrauding Medicare, Medicaid and private payers of $280,000 by submitting claims for office visits that never occurred, according to the Department of Justice.

To bill payers for bogus office visits, Dr. Ades admitted he altered patients' medical charts by inserting fabricated clinical notes and vitals to make it appear as if they had visited his office on billed dates.

Dr. Ades' $280,000 scheme ran from 2009 to 2013, according to the DOJ.

Dr. Ades has offices in Cresskill and Little Falls, N.J.
