Chicago Pharmacist Found Guilty of Insurance Drug Fraud

Posted on

A Chicago pharmacist has been found guilty of insurance fraud for taking money for drugs he never dispensed. According to eNews Park Forest the man collected more than $1.7 million through false claims he submitted to insurance companies. The defendant, RONALD KIELAR, also created fake documents to make his false insurance claims appear legitimate. Between November 2004 and August 2010, Kielar submitted 603 false claims and received more than $1.7 million from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois and the United Food and Commercial Workers Unions and Employers Midwest Health Benefit Fund.

Evidence showed that Kielar used proceeds from the fraud scheme to pay salaries to himself and his ex-wife, and then used those funds to pay mortgages on his home in Illinois, as well as properties in Florida and Arizona.
