North Texas doctor convicted of health care fraud

TYLER, Texas (AP) — A North Texas physician who ran a now-closed hospital near Dallas has been convicted of conspiracy, identity theft and health care fraud.

A federal jury in Tyler found Dr. Tariq Mahmood guilty Thursday of more than $1 million in fraudulent Medicare and Medicaid claims.

The Cedar Hill physician faces up to 10 years imprisonment for the conspiracy conviction, 10 years for each fraud count and two years for each identity theft count. No sentencing date has been set.

He owned the Renaissance Terrell Hospital, which closed in February 2013 after a federal agency halted funding. Mahmood also operated Cozby Germany Hospital in Grand Saline, Central Texas Hospital in Cameron, Community General Hospital in Dilley, Lake Whitney Medical Center in Whitney and Shelby Regional Medical Center in Center.
