Husband-and-wife doctors facing fraud indictment

LITTLE ROCK — Two doctors who run a Little Rock medical clinic are facing a federal indictment over $1.2 million in purported health-care fraud.

A grand jury on Wednesday indicted Robert Barrow and Angela Barrow. The two are husband and wife.

Both are charged with one count of conspiracy and six counts of health-care fraud. Robert Barrow also faces four counts of making false statements in relation to health-care matters.

Prosecutors said the Barrows affiliated their practice with a massage therapist, whose services were improperly billed to health insurance companies as physical therapy. The indictment says the Barrows split the proceeds with the massage therapist.

Claims to Medicare and a private insurer totaled more than $1.2 million. Robert Barrow is also accused of billing for ultrasounds that weren't performed.

This is much more of a problem for health care cost than tart reform.

And we wonder why the cost of healthcare is on the rise? These people should go to jail but will they?
