N.J. woman charged in $10M health care fraud scheme, officials say 3/24/2023 Camille Furst,

A Morris County woman was arrested Friday on charges related to conspiring to commit health care fraud, officials said.

Aysha Khan, 33, of Kinnelon, was charged with one count of of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and four counts of health care fraud, according to Philip Sellinger, U.S. attorney for the District of New Jersey.

Khan allegedly controlled and operated a series of “specialty pharmacies” in New Jersey, New York, Texas and Florida, officials said. Khan’s pharmacies allegedly billed health insurance providers for medications they did not provide to patients, Sellinger said. Khan Pharmacies received more than $10 million in reimbursement payments from Medicare for prescriptions they never ordered or had in stock, according to officials.

If convicted, Khan could face a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each charge, or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense, whichever is greater. Khan will have her first appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Edward S. Kiel in Newark federal court on Friday afternoon, according to officials.
