In southern California, another case of fraud. Not too long ago there were 3 other senior doctors involved in medication fraud in other states. It’s strange to see a rising number of physicians over the age of 65 involved in fraud. He also received 3 years probation. BD
A Huntington Beach doctor will surrender his medical license because of his involvement in a scam that bilked government health insurance out of $1.5 million.
Dr. Neil Hollander agreed to give up his license, effective June 1, in an agreement reached with the state medical board.
According to the attorney general's office, Hollander worked at Scott Medical Center in Burbank, where patients were recruited to undergo unnecessary exams. Medical records were allegedly falsified by a physician's assistant to bill Medi-Cal and Medicare for procedures that were never performed.
