Doctor Convicted in $9.5 Million Conspiracy


Dr. Benjamin T. Toh has been convicted for his role in a more than $9.5 million health care fraud conspiracy. He worked with purported telemedicine companies to obtain access to Medicare and Medicaid patients around the country. He ordered thousands of cancer genetic tests despite never actually meeting the patients in person or via telemedicine and never reviewing test results. In exchange for providing signed orders for genetic testing, the defendant was paid kickbacks by co-conspirator telemedicine companies.  These companies were, in turn, paid by co-conspirator marketing companies that targeted patients through door-to-door marketing, at senior fairs, at nursing homes, and at other locations and convinced them to provide their genetic material via a mouth swab kit.
