Philadelphia Dentist Accused of Nearly $5 Million Fraud

January 20, 2012

Authorities in Philadelphia say a city dentist and his daughter have been charged with submitting almost $5 million in fraudulent medical bills to insurance companies over the past decade.

Prosecutors said Wednesday that 71-year-old Dr. Owen Rogal of Philadelphia and 50-year-old Kim Rogal of Delaware are charged with corrupt organizations, criminal conspiracy, insurance fraud, and both theft and attempted theft by deception.

Officials allege that the two billed 15 firms at least $4,800 for pain treatments worth at most $800 from mid-2002 to the beginning of last year, pocketing more than $1 million of the total.

An answering service for Owen Rogal’s office said he was unavailable and a message could not be left for Kim Rogal due to a full voicemail mailbox; it was unclear whether they had attorneys.
