Paramjit is a licenced physician in Maryland who specialises in interventional pain management, while his wife is a psychiatrist. Prosecutors said the Ajrawats filed claims for procedures that were either not performed at their pain management clinic or less expensive procedures were performed. The couple falsely billed for procedures that provided for higher reimbursements. The Ajrawats were indicted by the US authorities in June 2014 and face a maximum 10 years in prison.
The sentencing is set for February 1 next year.
