A London-based doctor has been sentenced to 42 months in federal prison for defrauding Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurers. The doctor, Dr. Anis Chalhoub, was convicted in April of implanting over 200 medically unnecessary pacemakers in patients at St. Joseph London hospital, reportedly even pressuring patients and giving them misleading information so that they would agree to the procedures. He is ordered to pay $257,515 in restitution to Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurers, as well as a $50,000 fine. USAO EDKY
