health care fraud

Doctor, clinic owner charged with fraud by police


A doctor once based in Cornwall and a clinic owner have been charged for allegedly defrauding the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care for more than $100,000 while operating a clinic in the city.

Dr. Brian Connolly, 52, of Malone, N. Y. and Lori MacDonald, 36, face charges by the OPP's Health Fraud Investigation Unit of fraud over $5,000 following an eight-month investigation into allegations they were billing the ministry for patient services not provided.



The United States spent $2.4 trillion on health care, or $1928 per person in 2006. That's at least 2.5 times more per person than any other developed country, yet the health of Americans lags behind those nations, said the Associated Press

Not sure I trust this site, though, as they ask for 'donations' to keep the (free) blog going!
