Acquitted of Role in Healthcare Fraud Scandal by Ex-Georgia Insurance Commissioner

A major step in a case involving large payments has occurred with the admission of participation in a healthcare fraud scheme by John Oxendine, a former insurance commissioner of Georgia. On Friday, Oxendine’s guilty plea was announced by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia. The complaint against Oxendine was conspiracy to conduct health care fraud.

Authorities believe that Oxendine was involved in a scheme to submit fraudulent claims to a Texas laboratory for needless medical testing in order to defraud insurance companies. Oxendine and his friends reappeared with substantial bribes for their false assertions.

The massive amount of money involved in the plan highlights how serious of a deception Oxendine and his accomplices committed. When someone commit health care fraud, it puts everyone’s safety at risk since they can end up with needless medical treatments.

A major step towards taking responsibility for his conduct, Oxendine has pled guilty. This episode should serve as a reminder that those in positions of trust and authority have an additional need to behave ethically.

Authorities will continue investigating and prosecuting those linked to the scam as the legal proceedings advance to accomplish justice and establish measures to prevent such fraud in the future.
