NY court charges a physician involved in $700,000 HIV drug fiasco

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance speaks during the Reuters Future Face of Finance Summit in New York
A doctor from Manhattan was busted for falsely telling 150 patients to claim they harbor the HIV virus so he could claim from Medicaid $700,000 for medications.
After posting a $250,000-bond, the 57-year-old Dr. Suresh Hemrajani pleaded not guilty on Friday to felony charges of grand larceny, falsification of records and health care fraud to the Manhattan Supreme Court, New York Post said.
