Dr. Yong Am Park of Lake City, Florida, was sentenced to two years in prison for Medicaid fraud and prescription drug-related charges. Park also relinquished his medical license.
Undercover investigators conducted a series of visits to Park, who prescribed controlled substances such as oxycodone and hydrocodone outside the course of his professional practice. Investigators also discovered that Medicaid was paying for many of these illegal prescriptions.
Park was convicted of Medicaid fraud, prescription fraud, unauthorized possession of a prescription form, and selling a controlled substance.
The investigation was conducted by multiple agencies including the Florida Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, the Lake City Police Department, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
