Lawsuit Accuses Seaford Doctor of Medicare Fraud

10/30/2008 7:29 AM ET

SEAFORD, Del. (AP)- A Seaford doctor is being sued by the federal government for alleged Medicare fraud.

The suit claims family practice physician Hipolito Aguillon submitted more than 2,400 inflated Medicare reimbursement claims between March 2005 and December 2006.

He is also accused of altering documentation to support the bogus claims. U.S. Attorney for Delaware Colm Connolly says the state's Medicare carrier has known about Aguillon's improper billing practices since 2002.

If the government prevails in the civil suit, it could collect between $5,500 and $11,000 for each allegedly false claim.
