On Tuesday, the Department of Justice announced that Texas doctor, Daniel Canchola, pled guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud related to his role in signing orders for durable medical equipment and genetic testing resulting in more than $54 million false and fraudulent claims to Medicare. The DOJ alleged that Canchola received approximately $30 in exchange for each signed doctor’s order authorizing DME and cancer genetic tests that were not legitimately prescribed, not needed or not used.
