Mechanicsburg doctor gets 15 months for fraud

Posted: Updated:

A Mechanicsburg doctor will spend 15 months in a federal prison for health care fraud and pension fraud.

Timothy Clark, 47, was sentenced Thursday by Chief U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Conner.

He was also ordered to pay restitution of $130,535 and forfeit an additional $105,518.

Clark, the owner of Central Pennsylvania Pulmonary Associates and Sleep Disorder Centers of Central Pennsylvania, was indicted in June 2012 on charges he failed to deposit employee contributions into their 401(k) plans.

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

Clark was indicted a second time in July 2012 on charges he intentionally inflated health insurance claims he submitted to Medicare, Highmark, and Capital Blue Cross, according to Smith.

Smith said Clark, who provided critical care services to patients of Holy Spirit Hospital, intentionally inflated the amount of time spent with patients by the health care providers he employed.
