SACRAMENTO – Recently a Carmichael neurosurgeon was arrested and charged with insurance fraud. 64-year-old Laura Anderson, MD, now faces “multiple counts of medical insurance fraud, workers’ compensation fraud, and grand theft.”
Apparently Dr. Anderson submitted fraudulent claims in excess of $500,000. After her arrest, the suspect bailed out and now faces arraignment on April 18th.
Anderson’s scheme went on from 2013 through 2018 in which she billed the “State Compensation Insurance Fund for medical services she never provided her patients and “upcoding” of bills to illegally obtain a greater payout from the insurer.”
