Husband-and-wife doctors facing fraud indictment


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) _ Two doctors who run a Little Rock medical clinic are
facing a federal indictment for $1.2 million in alleged health care fraud.

A grand jury on Wednesday indicted Doctors Robert Barrow and Angela Barrow. The
two are husband and wife.

Both are charged with one count of conspiracy and six counts of health care
fraud. Robert Barrow also faces four counts of making false statements in
relation to health care matters.

Prosecutors say the Barrows affiliated their practice with a massage therapist,
whose services were improperly billed to health insurance companies as physical
therapy. The indictment says the Barrows split the proceeds with the massage
therapist.

Claims to Medicare and a private insurer totaled more than $1.2 million. Robert
Barrow is also accused of billing for ultrasounds that weren't performed.
