Texas Doctor Pleads Not Guilty In Medicare, Medicaid Fraud Case

DALLAS (September 20, 2012)—Dr. Jacques Roy, 54, a North Texas doctor who’s accused of running a scheme to defraud Medicare and Medicaid of nearly $375 million, has pleaded not guilty to charges in a new indictment.

Roy entered the new plea Thursday in federal court in Dallas.

He's now charged in a federal indictment with multiple counts of conspiracy, obstructing justice, fraud and making false statements, accused of signing off on thousands of claims to bill the federal government for unnecessary or unfilled services.

In June, the Texas Medical Board said Roy agreed to surrender his license to practice medicine in the state.

The order says Roy does not admit or deny the federal allegations against him, but agreed to a settlement to avoid a possible lawsuit.
