Dr. Richard E. Paulus, an Ashland cardiologist, was sentenced to five years in prison for defrauding Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurers. Evidence showed that Paulus implanted medically unnecessary stents in his patients and falsified the degree of stenosis in their medical records. He has been charged with one count of health care fraud and ten counts of making false statements in regard to health care matters. In addition to time in prison, Paulus must also pay $1.1 million in restitution to Medicare, Medicaid, and other private insurers who were also victims of his financial scheme. DOJ
