Husband And Wife Physicians Convicted Of Health Care Fraud

GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — Two Potomac doctors who owned and operated a pain management clinic have been convicted of health care fraud.

A federal jury in Greenbelt on Friday convicted 60-year-old Paramjit Singh Ajrawat and his wife, 57-year-old Sukhveen Kaur Ajrawat, of numerous offenses, including health care and wire fraud, obstruction of justice, and aggravated identity theft.

The Ajrawats owned and operated Washington Pain Management Center in Greenbelt. According to evidence presented at trial, they filed claims for procedures that were not performed to Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE and other federal health benefit programs.

Prosecutors say the Ajrawats defrauded the U.S. of at least $2.5 million.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 1.
