Federal agents raided West Palm Beach eye doctor Salomon Melgen’s office for the second time this year, the Palm Beach Post reports. For four years, Melgen has been in a dispute with the federal government over allegations he was overpaid millions of dollars by Medicare. His attorney says Tuesday’s raid is payback for a lawsuit the doctor filed against U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
