DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Dover pain doctor has been charged with felony health care fraud after state investigators say he repeatedly billed agencies for services he did not provide.

The Delaware Department of Justice says in a news release that Dr. Senad Cemerlic was arrested Sept. 22 on six counts of felony health care fraud. Cemerlic is an anesthesiologist and owner of ABG Pain Clinic in Dover.

The department says that after receiving a tip on the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit’s hotline, the unit performed a lengthy investigation into Cemerlic’s billing practices between November 2012 and September 2013 at the clinic.

The department says it was able to establish and identify extensive patterns of fraud, including billing for services never provided and submitting claims for services and testing that weren’t medically necessary.
