CBS DFW on February 28, 2012 released the following:
“ROCKWALL (CBSDFW.COM) – A North Texas doctor has been arrested and charged in what’s being described as the largest healthcare fraud case in U.S. history.
Between January, 2006 and November of last year, Dr. Jacques Roy is accused of cheating Medicare and Medicaid, and ultimately taxpayers, nearly $380 million dollars.
Top U.S. Justice department officials have flown to Dallas Tuesday to make the announcement along with the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, and the Special Agent in charge of the Dallas FBI, Robert Casey.
Roy will make an appearance in federal court Tuesday afternoon.
Six other people have also been indicted in the massive fraud case. They include Dr. Roy’s office manager Teri Sivils, and the owners of North Texas home health care agencies.
CBS 11 cameras were rolling last June 2nd, when agents from the FBI and the Office of Health and Humans Services Inspector General executed search warrants at Roy’s Rockwall house and at one of the healthcare agencies, Charry Home Care Services in Dallas.
These other six defendants will appear today before a judge in federal court as well.
As of this writing at 1:08 p.m. on February 28, Roy’s Texas medical license is still active. However, the Texas Medical Board typically suspends the licenses of doctors who are charged with felonies.”
