Washington: An Indian-American doctor has been sentenced to nine-months in jail for taking kickbacks for diagnostic testing referrals of his patients and failing to file tax returns on USD 1 million of income over a three-year period.
Yash Khanna, 72, of Livingston in New Jersey, had last year admitted to earning income of more than USD 381,000 in 2008, USD 400,000 in 2009 and USD 214,000 in 2010. The Justice Department had said that he intentionally failed to file tax returns or ask for extensions during those years.
From 2009 through to 2011, Khanna owned and operated his own medical practice, Family Medicine and Pediatrics LLC, according to court documents. He received cash kickbacks from Orange MRI for diagnostic tests performed on Medicare and Medicaid patients and met with an Orange MRI representative at his office on October 4, 2011, and November 10, 2011, taking envelopes with cash, the documents had said.
He had further accepted to earning income of more than USD 381,000, USD 400,000 and USD 214,000 in the years 2008, 2009 and 2010 respectively. In addition to imprisonment, Judge Cecchi sentenced Khanna to one month of severe house arrest and three years of supervised release. He was also fined USD 30,000 and ordered to forfeit USD 10,400.
