Toulouse doctor suspected of fraud won’t be tried till 2019
The doctor who has been pursued for having allegedly swindled €420,000 out of CPAM Haute-Garonne, appeared at the Toulouse Criminal Court on Monday. The hearing was adjourned to February 11, 2019. Expert appraisals were ordered.
He is accused of ‘aggravated fraud’, and the use of forgery and complicity against CPAM Haute-Garonne.
In July 2017, the general practitioner from Toulouse was placed in custody, suspected of having swindled a large amount of money. There were a “disproportionate number” of consultations between 2013 and 2016 that caught the attention of CPAM. The practitioner reported up to 115 consultations per day, or 5 minutes per patient.
The doctor from the Mirail district has been challenging the claims of the fraud since the beginning. But he admits, according to his lawyer, Alexander Martin, to have used other people's documents to treat foreigners without papers, in order to "treat everyone".
