Owner of Hampden Twp. medical practices charged with fraud
The owner of two Hampden Township medical facilities has been charged with health care fraud and money laundering, according to the U.S. Attorney's office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Timothy Allen Clark, 43, of Central Pennsylvania Pulmonary Associates and Sleep Disorder Centers of Central Pennsylvania, is accused of inflating health insurance claims submitted to Medicare, Highmark Inc. and Capital BlueCross by more than $500,000, then transferring approximately $103,000 to CPPA payroll and money market accounts, according to a news release.
The care was provided at Holy Spirit Hospital, and the fraud happened between Dec. 2007, and Sept. 26, 2008, the release said.
In a separate indictment issued in June, Clark was charged with embezzling $25,000 from a CPPA employee pension plan by withholding employee contributions in bank accounts he controlled from July 2010 through December 2011.
Both cases are pending in federal district court.
