A federal judge sentenced a Corona del Mar doctor to 18 months in prison for submitting bills for drugs that cancer patients never received, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
Dr. Glen R. Justice, 66, was sentenced Monday at the U.S. District Court in Santa Ana. He pleaded guilty to five counts of health-care fraud in May 2010.
Justice ran the Pacific Coast Hematology/Oncology Medical Group in Fountain Valley, according to a news release. He was convicted of billing insurance providers, including Medicare, for injectable drugs that patients never received and for more expensive drugs than were actually administered.
