TORONTO — Provincial police have charged two doctors at independent health care facilities with fraud after allegedly receiving payment for services that were never rendered.
Investigators with the OPP Anti-Rackets Branch Health Fraud Investigation Unit received a case referral from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care that alleged that MIC Medical Imaging, owned by radiologist Dr. Mukesh Jain and surgeon Dr. Minto Jain, was paid for medical services by patients that it did not conduct.
The police investigation found that MIC billed OHIP for chest ultrasounds that were never performed. Police said patients had visited MIC clinics in Orangeville, Bolton and Cambridge, Ont.
As a result of the investigation, Mukesh (Mick) Jain, 45, of Mississauga, and Minto Jain, 48, of Mississauga, have been charged with fraud over $5,000.
The pair are scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on Nov. 19.
