A doctor who ran clinics in Boynton Beach and Delray Beach has been indicted on eight counts of fraud, the Palm Beach Post reports. 

Dr. Isaac KojoAnakwah Thompson defrauded Medicare when he submitted fraudulent diagnoses to the Humana HMO network for Medicare Advantage beneficiaries and received $2.1 million in excess fees as a result of the scheme, according to the Post.

Thompson faces up to 10 years in prison on each count, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
