Deceased Mountain Home Doctor May Have Crafted Largest Medicare Fraud in State History
Efforts continue by the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas to recover assets of a cardiologist charged with over billing Medicare by nearly $15 million.
Dr. Stacey Johnson of Mountain Home died earlier this year. A criminal investigator’s affidavit that was recently made public says if he were still alive, criminal charges likely would have been filed against Johnson.
Arkansas Business probes the case of Dr. Johnson in this week’s issue and reporter Mark Friedman spoke with KUAR’s Michael Hibblen about the case. You can hear the interview above. You can also read the full story in Arkansas Business here.
