Seeking Information in Dr. Mona Ghosh Investigation
The FBI’s Chicago Division is seeking information in the investigation of Dr. Mona Ghosh, who was recently indicted on 13 counts of health care fraud.
The indictment alleges that from February 2018 to April 2022, Mona Ghosh, 50, of Inverness, Illinois—a licensed physician who owned and operated Progressive Women’s Healthcare, S.C. (Progressive) in Hoffman Estates, Illinois—participated in a scheme to defraud the government programs of TRICARE and Medicaid, along with several private insurance companies. The indictment alleges that Ghosh knowingly submitted fraudulent claims for reimbursement for services that weren't provided and for services that weren't medically necessary. These included claims for purported telemedicine visits when Ghosh didn't speak to the patient, claims for office visits and procedures when Ghosh didn't see the patient, claims for procedures predicated on false diagnoses, and claims for medically unnecessary procedures and tests, including endometrial ablations and laboratory testing. Ghosh fraudulently obtained, and caused Progressive to obtain, approximately $796,000 in fraudulent payments from multiple health care benefit programs for services that weren't provided as billed.
