CLARKSBURG — The second day of a Clarksburg dermatologist’s federal fraud trial focused on numerous medical billing statements and property and equipment leases.
Mary Ann Withrow, a special agent with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, testified Thursday about the documents the government presented as evidence against Dr. Allen Saoud.
The documents include billing statements to Medicare and Medicaid and lease agreements between AGS and Central West Virginia Dermatology.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office alleges Saoud transferred doctors, staff and patients from AGS to Central West Virginia Dermatology to circumvent a 2005 settlement in a civil action brought by the government.
Saoud, 58, of Clarksburg, is charged with 32 counts alleging health care fraud, bankruptcy fraud, making false statements to investigators and identity theft.
