GREENBELT, Md. (AP) - Two doctors who owned and operated pain management clinic have been indicted on charges of health care fraud.

A 16-count indictment against 60-year-old Paramjit Singh Ajrawat and his wife, 56-year-old Sukhveen Kaur Ajrawat of Potomac was returned Tuesday by a grand jury in Greenbelt.

Prosecutors say the Ajrawats, who operated Washington Pain Management Center in Greenbelt, filed claims for procedures that were not performed.

The indictment alleges that the Ajrawats billed Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE and other federal programs for procedures that cost less than they filed for or were not performed in compliance with the requirements for reimbursement.

Prosecutors say the scheme netted the Ajrawats more than $2.3 million.
