BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) - A Bloomington Physician faces charges that he required patients to undergo medically unnecessary injection procedures as a condition of receiving pain killers such as methadone, Percocet, Oxycotin and oxycodone.
Kamal Tiwari was indicted on charges of health care fraud, health care fraud resulting in serious bodily injury, and eleven counts of unlawful drug distribution.
The indictment alleges that the injection procedures were performed in a frequency and pattern that was not medically necessary, and was outside the bounds of medical practice and not for a legitimate medical purpose.
The indictment also alleges that Tiwari prescribed controlled substances as part of a scheme to defraud, in such dosage frequencies, combinations of controlled substances, and in such amounts to drug-dependent patients as were likely to cause and did cause those patients to submit to unwanted an unnecessary injection procedures and other services, and to cause those patients to become dependent on the medically unnecessary procedures.
