A Panama City pediatrician has been arrested after a joint investigation between State Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Medicaid Fraud Unit and the Bay County Sheriff’s Office.
According to a release from Bondi’s office, a complaint to the Attorney General’s fraud hotline initiated a Medicaid fraud investigation against Sameh Mohamed Elamir, 45, for allegedly stealing more than $250,000 from Florida Medicaid.
Investigators say Elamir allegedly billed for providing services while out of the United States, upcoded for services provided by Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners and other services and billed Medicaid for office visits for providing ear piercings.
Elamir faces two counts of Medicaid fraud more than $50,000, first-degree felonies, and two counts of Medicaid fraud less than $10,000, third-degree felonies. If convicted, Elamir faces up to 70 years in prison and more than $1.5 million in fines and restitution.
Elamir is a doctor with Bright Pediatrics, which has two locations in Panama City according to the office’s website, one on East 15th Street and one on West 23rd Street.
Attorney General Bondi’s office will prosecute the case through an agreement with the State Attorney’s Office for the 14th Judicial Circuit.
