CLEARWATER CLINIC OPERATOR FOUND NOT GUILTY OF FRAUD

Photobucket CLEARWATER, FLORIDA (AUGUST 3, 2011) – The operator of a Clearwater pain clinic didn’t know a doctor for whom she submitted $457,000 in Medicare claims had been banned from participating in the federally-funded insurance program, due to a prior felony conviction. Jayam Krishna Iyer had been accused of six counts of fraud and after a week-long trial was found not guilty.
The not guilty verdict does not, however, end Iyer’s legal troubles. She’s facing two more lawsuits in conjunction with a patient death from an accidental overdose. Court documents allege Iyer was negligent in prescribing medications, which ultimately led to the death of Theresa Ann Kincaid. Iyer’s insurance company at the same time is seeking to void Iyer’s malpractice insurance policy under the pretense that Iyer submitted her insurance application using false information.
