Fraud Doc Heading to Court

Dr. Fitzgerald A. Hudson has been charged with health care fraud, appearing Thursday in federal court in Detroit, Michigan.  He used to work at both Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville and Noyes Memorial Hospital in Danville.  His medical license was revoked in 2010.  He was released on a $10,000 unsecured bond, but he was made to surrender his passport.  One condition of his bond was that he not practice medicine at all or accept any Medicaid money.  He is scheduled to appear March 29th before Magistrate Judge H. Kenneth Schroeder, Jr. in Buffalo, NY.

The criminal complaint states that Hudson lied on his license application, with claims that he graduated from York-University Faculty of Science in North York, Ontario.  He received his license in October of 2007.  His history of lies also includes applications for admission to American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine, Ross University School of Medicine in the West Indies and an application to Warren Hospital in New Jersey.  He never earned a degree from either school and was dismissed from Warren Hospital’s residency program in 2003.

He was reimbursed about $900,000 for services he provided between August 2008 and 2010 by Medicare, Medicaid and private health insurance companies.  He could receive up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 unless his conduct resulted in serious bodily injury to someone.  If that can be determined, he could get up to 20 years.
