Indian-American Doctor in Florida Pleads Guilty to Healthcare Fraud
Beginning at least as early as July 2011, and continuing through December 2017, investigators say Iyer executed and carried out a scheme to defraud Medicare.
An Indian-American physician from Clearwater, Florida, pleaded guilty to healthcare fraud Sept. 18.
Dr. Jayam Krishna Iyer, 66, pleaded guilty to one count of health care fraud. She faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison, or 20 years, if her offense involves serious bodily injury, according to a press release from the Department of Justice’s Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Florida.
