Kansas doctor accused of running "pill mill"
The Kansas Board of Healing Arts on Tuesday suspended the medical license of a jailed doctor and shut down his Haysville, KS clinic that prosecutors have labeled a "pill mill." The physician's was charged last month with illegally distributing medication. Prosecutors allege the clinic stayed open long hours, rushing patients through and prescribing drugs for no legitimate medical reason. The physician also allegedly then pocketed millions of dollars by filing fraudulent claims with health insurance carriers, including Medicare and Medicaid, according to the federal indictment. Prosecutors say at least 56 patients treated died of accidental overdose
