Keoghs assist in fraud conviction of Harley Street doctor

News And Events||02/02/2017

Last week saw the conviction of Dr Benjamin Chang who was found guilty of a two-year scam against insurance companies which saw him systematically billing almost £200,000 for non-existent physiotherapy sessions.

In passing a two-year sentence at the Old Bailey, Judge Philip Katz told Dr Chang he could see no other motivation than greed, stating;

“There was a gravy train passing by and you wanted to jump on it. This is, in many ways, a tragic case because, as you realise, the scale of this fraud and the fact that you have denied it in the face of overwhelming evidence means there is only one way I can deal with you - it is to sentence a hard-working doctor to prison.”

The conviction represents an excellent result for the City of London Police’s IFED team and also Keoghs who assisted the team with their investigation.

Keoghs Director of Healthcare Fraud, Simon Winnard, initially provided the police with intelligence developed on Dr Chang, his companies and other connected parties.

He then undertook the criminal interview of Dr Chang with IFED; drawing on his detailed understanding of medico-legal fraud and years of specialist experience interviewing medical professionals.

Following Dr Chang’s conviction, which was the culmination of a complex and lengthy investigation, Simon commented;

“This is a fantastic result and testament to the hard work of Mick Jones and the IFED team. Keoghs were delighted to assist the police with their investigation. Healthcare enabled fraud is a massive issue and Keoghs is committed to helping insurers combat the problem.”

Keoghs’ Healthcare Fraud team is uniquely placed to provide intelligence, validation and investigation services for its insurer clients. For further information, please contact Simon Winnard, Director of Healthcare Fraud.
