Another reason for the increased cost of medical insurance

A McAllen cardiologist who sent medical assistants and untrained employees around South Texas in a recreational vehicle to offer “free” diagnoses and treatment – only to later bill the federal government – has pleaded guilty to health care fraud.

Dr. Fabian Aurignac billed the federal Medicaid and Medicare programs thousands of dollars for services unlicensed workers performed, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

Aurignac, 46, used the Medicare and Midicaid numbers of the people his RV crew found to bill the government for services thatwere never performed, performed by unlicensed personnel, or performed unnecessarily, according to the indictment.

Aurignac admitted guilt as part of a plea agreement and faces up to 10 years in prison.

What Our Clients Say

I have nothing but great things to share about my experience with Andrew and his Lawfirm. From the start, he was extremely understanding and informative. He was always communicating with me about my case wether by phone or email. He kept me in the loop of everything that was going on and was realistic about what to expect. He gave me options and finally ended up winning my case which 4 other lawyers refused to take. I 100% recommend him and will always be thankful that he handled my case and gave me some peace of mind.
