Bangalore: Dilip Kachare, an Indian-origin physician in New York has been charged with a healthcare fraud scheme, accounting to an amount of $12 million, reports PTI. If convicted, he will have to serve a jail term of 30 years, along with a fine of $250,000.



Kachare fraudulently received money from healthcare benefit programmes, such as Medicare, Medicaid and many other private insurers, between the time period 2002-2012. He claimed that he treated several patients a day and took compensation for that.



Kachare, based in Utica pleaded guilty to the charges and was released on bail after surrendering his passport to the authorities concerned. Richard Hartunian, US Attorney for the Northern District of New York said in a statement that a New York grand jury returned an indictment last week charging Kachare. He has been charged with three counts of healthcare fraud and 16 counts of mail fraud.



An investigation conducted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General and the Federal Bureau of Investigation resulted in the revealing of the health fraud. Kachare has not been involved in any criminal cases so far, as per the New York state health records.

1: Many Indians have brought innovation and education skills to USA. Some Indians behave the same way they used to do in India. Cheat, fraud, deceptive practices and theft. They have also brought with them bribery and corruption! USA is fast becoming a corrupt nation!
