Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey announced today that a doctor was arrested today and charged with health care claims and insurance fraud.
Wagih Tadros, 64, of Edison, whose medical practice is in East Brunswick, was charged with five counts of health care claims fraud in the second degree and one count of insurance fraud in the second degree.
Tadros was released on a summons and his initial court appearance is scheduled for October 5th.
He was charged following an extensive investigation by Detective Jonathan Berman of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.
During the investigation, it was determined that between February 6, 2010 and May 21, 2015, Tadros submitted claims for payment to Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield that provided inaccurate diagnosis for the patient visits. These claims resulted in an overpayment by Horizon to the Doctor.
The investigation is active and continuing.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Jonathan Berman of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-4328.
As is the case with all criminal defendants, the charges against Tadros are merely accusations and he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
