Mechanicsburg doctor pleads guilty to fraud, embezzlement

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Mechanicsburg doctor and owner of two central Pennsylvania medical facilities has pleaded guilty in federal court to charges of health care fraud, money laundering, and embezzlement from an employee pension plan.

Dr. Timothy Clark, 44, a medical doctor, pulmonologist, and owner of Central Pennsylvania Pulmonary Associates and Sleep Disorder Centers of Central Pennsylvania, entered the pleas Monday before U.S. District Judge Christopher C. Conner.

He is scheduled for sentencing on July 29.

Clark in June was indicted by a federal grand jury in Harrisburg on charges he failed to deposit employee 401(k) contributions into their retirement plans, but instead maintained the funds in bank accounts he controlled.

His employees lost approximately $25,000 of their retirement funds, according to U.S. Attorney Peter Smith.

Clark was indicted a second time in July on charges that he intentionally inflated health insurance claims he submitted to Medicare, Highmark, and Capital Blue Cross, according to Smith, who said the fraudulent claims exceeded $500,000.

He was also charged with transferring approximately $103,000 obtained through the health care fraud to CPPA payroll and money market accounts.
