Local Doctor Charged With Health Care Fraud 9-23-2010

A local doctor is facing federal charges of health care fraud, it was announced on Thursday.
Federal attorneys said Dr. Richard A. Behnan, 54, of Flint, and 48-year-old Kelly Morel, of Davison, falsely charged insurance companies for more than $880,000.
Prosecutors said the pair diagnosed patients with fake foot infections and then billed insurance companies for a surgical procedure.
Each faces 41 counts of fraud. If convicted, the pair could be sentenced to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine per count.
Prosecutors said the pair carried out their scheme in the Bay City area.
