KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A former Kansas City doctor pleaded guilty to committing health care fraud for the second time.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/2iR9deI ) reports 74-year-old Wayne Williamson admitted in federal court Tuesday that he performed disability examinations while working as a consultant for an Independence medical clinic between 2013 and 2015. Federal prosecutors say the examinations were a violation of the contract between the clinic and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs because it stated exams could only be done by licensed providers.

Williamson lost his medical license in 2010 after pleading guilty to health care fraud, conspiracy to distribute prescription drugs and harassing or attempting to harass an investigator with the Missouri State Board of Healing Arts.

The former doctor must repay the government nearly $40,000 for the examinations.
