Greenville Doctor Found Guilty of Medicaid Fraud
A Greenville doctor has been found guilty of defrauding the state’s Medicaid fraud system, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.
Dr. Hosan Menanya Azomani, 45, was convicted of two counts of Medicaid fraud by a jury today. The trial lasted six days. Sentencing has not yet been set.
The attorney general’s investigation showed that Dr. Azamani was billing Medicaid for more expensive services than he was actually rendering.
“We appreciate the jury for their time and their ruling in this case,” said Attorney General Hood. “This defendant bilked the system out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. We do think jail time would make for an appropriate sentence.”
The case has been investigated and prosecuted by the Attorney Generals Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
