Frederick Doctor To Pay $450,000 To Settle Fraud Case

April 4th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh announced today that Sabiha Mohiuddin, M.D., a primary care physician practicing in Frederick, Maryland, will pay $450,000 to the State of Maryland to resolve allegations that she engaged in a fraudulent billing scheme to increase profits.

Mohiuddin owns and operates a primary care practice serving Medicaid recipients.  The settlement stems from a civil complaint filed in the Circuit Court for Frederick County, wherein Maryland alleged that from January, 2007 through February, 2014, Mohiuddin engaged in a scheme of billing routine doctor’s visits at a higher level of care than was provided to increase reimbursement from the Maryland Medicaid Program. Mohiuddin, without an admission of liability, agreed to pay $450,000 to settle the lawsuit. 

Attorney General Frosh thanked Deputy Director Jennifer S. Forsythe, Auditors Carol Kelly and Todd Sheffer, Investigator Melinda FitzGerald and Paralegal Allison Seigle for their work on this case. Attorney General Frosh also thanked the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Office of the Inspector General for its assistance.
