A Hoover doctor and her husband were arrested Wednesday morning as part of the ongoing investigation into the medical profession accused of illegally prescribing opioids. The search warrant was executed at her home on East Main Street in Hoover, Alabama, said Jennifer Hamilton, spokeswoman for the Alabama Attorney General's Office. She said agents arrived at the home to remove evidence they could find in connection with the investigation. Hamilton said the search warrants were part of an "ongoing investigation" involving the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Alabama State Police.
Hamilton said the DEA has investigated and convicted 10 Alabama doctors over the past three years for prescribing narcotics without a legitimate medical need. Newly appointed US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said he will pursue such cases vigorously, Hamilton said.

If the patient or caregiver is insured, they are seen on a cash basis and the doctor decides what to charge. It is your responsibility to know whether a written referral or authorisation is required to see a specialist, whether pre-authorisation is required before an operation or whether the service is not covered by insurance. When a doctor orders and provides a service, it remains the responsibility of the patient or caregiver to pay for it.
As described above, the doctor must discharge the patient from the practice as soon as possible after the procedure is completed.
