Just a couple of weeks ago, a large-scale workers’ comp fraud ring was discovered in Southern California. More than two dozen doctors, pharmacists and business owners in California are now facing insurance fraud charges in a $40 million fraudulent workers’ compensation medical billing and kickback operation uncovered by federal, state, and local regulators.

Defendants Tanya Moreland King, 37, and her husband Christopher King, 38, both of Beverly Hills, are accused of masterminding a complex insurance fraud scheme of recruiting doctors and pharmacists to prescribe unnecessary treatment for workers comp patients between 2011 and 2015. More than 13,000 patients and at least 27 insurers were victims in the scheme, with approximately $23.2 million paid out to the defendants and a total of $40 million billed to insurers.
