Clinical Social Worker Robert F. White Indicted For Health Care Fraud
Oregon Attorney General Hardy Myers today announced that Robert F. White, a licensed clinical social worker in Manzanita, was indicted by the Tillamook County Grand Jury. The indictment alleges 73 separate felony counts of Making False Claims for Health Care Payments.
The indictment stems from White's submission of health care claims for counseling services provided patients, which were paid by federally funded health care programs and private insurance companies. It is alleged that White submitted numerous insurance claims for counseling services which never actually took place.
The case was investigated by the Oregon Department of Justice Medicaid Fraud Unit, with assistance from the Office of Inspector General of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, which has oversight authority over the Medicare Program.
The indictment is merely an accusation, and by law White is presumed innocent of the charges.
