Pediatrician Convicted of Medicaid Fraud in Alabama (2001)
Alabama convicted pediatrician Nival Miller of Medicaid fraud in June 2001. She pleaded guilty to billing for many services that she did not provide, including: breathing treatments, hearing tests, and antibiotic injections.
“This doctor not only defrauded the State of money that was intended for treatment of needy and deserving patients, but may well have placed her own patients’ health at risk with inappropriate tests and treatment,” said Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor. “We are grateful to the principled former employees who brought this matter to the attention of authorities.”
The ConsequencesMontgomery County Circuit Court sentenced Nival R. Miller to three years imprisonment,(which was suspended). She was placed on two years of supervised probation and ordered to pay $175,000 in restitution to the State of Alabama.
