Dr Anindya Kumar-Sen and his wife Patricia Posy Sen are accused of purchasing a Chinese drug thru Canada at a cheaper price and then charging Medicare 3.2 Million dollars. The indictments include one count of conspiracy against the United States; 29 counts of introduction into interstate commerce a misbranded drug with intent to defraud or mislead; seven counts of knowingly importing merchandise contrary to law; and one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud. The Sens' indictments came one day after another Johnson City Doctor was sentenced to two years in federal prison and fined $10,000 after his conviction in a similar case.
