HOUSTON (AP) - Prosecutors say two doctors are among six people charged in a $12 million health care fraud case linked to clinics and medical labs in Houston.

The 25-count indictment was returned July 1 in Houston and unsealed Thursday.

The suspects were arrested Thursday over allegations of unnecessary treatment, false billing and kickbacks. The charges include conspiracy to commit health care fraud and health care fraud.

Prosecutors identified the two Houston physicians as 61-year-old Dr. Harding Ross and 63-year-old Dr. Faiz Ahmed (uh-MED’).

An office number for Ross indicated his voice mailbox was full and not accepting more messages Thursday. A message left for Ahmed at an office affiliated with him wasn’t immediately returned.

Another suspect has also been charged with money laundering.
