Another attorney pled guilty to conspiracy to commit health care fraud, admitting to a scheme under which he received more than $26 million from the US Department of Labor Office of Workers’ Compensation Program. Dallas attorney, Tshombe “Shaun” Anderson, admitted that he and four family members ran a durable medical equipment billing scheme involving patient information taken from Union Treatment Centers. Anderson had previously worked for Union Treatment Centers as an attorney. The scheme involved duplicate billing for unwanted durable medical equipment that was not medically necessary, using outdated medical information. Anderson faces sentencing on 11/19/17, and faces up to 10 years in prison and restitution. In addition, $8.4 million was seized from 25 bank accounts associated with him, his firm and his family, as well as two houses, several luxury cars and almost $700,000 in cash seized from his home and that of his sister. It appears that the powers that be are starting to take workers’ compensation fraud seriously!
