MedAlert Healthcare Systems Indicted for Workers’ Comp Fraud

December 27, 2005

A Travis County, Texas, grand jury has indicted MedAlert Healthcare Systems Inc. and its president, Joseph Osei, on workers’ compensation fraud-related charges, according to Texas Mutual Insurance Company.

MedAlert provides billing and collection services for medical providers. The indictments allege that Osei and MedAlert fraudulently double-billed Texas Mutual Insurance Company for medical services rendered from October 2000 to March 2001.

In announcing the grand jury action, Texas Mutual noted that a grand jury indictment is a formal accusation—not a conviction—of criminal conduct.
