BALTIMORE (Legal Newsline) - Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh announced April 4 that Sabiha Mohiuddin, a Frederick, Md.-based primary care physician, has paid $450,000 to the state after allegations of conducting a fraudulent Medicaid billing scheme to increase profits.
According to a civil complaint filed in Frederick County Circuit Court, Mohiuddin operated the fraudulent scheme while owning and managing a primary care practice that mostly serves Medicaid recipients.
From January 2007 until February 2014, Mohiuddin purportedly billed for more expensive services than she actually delivered to patients. By doing this, Mohiuddin could receive more reimbursement funds from the Maryland Medicaid Program.
Mohiuddin did not admit liability but agreed to pay $450,000 to settle the allegations.
