Anukul and Anurag Dass were a brother and sister team who ran a pain clinic in Houston before they were charged with a seven-year fraud scheme, during which time they requested $9.1 million in reimbursement for false workers’ compensation claims.
An associate of the Dass’s, Stephen Hunt, turned himself in. The brother and sister ran A&A Pain and Wellness Center, Inc. from 2010 to 2017. Hunt allegedly sent postal employees to the pain clinic and got kickbacks for each claim Anukul and Anurag filed falsely for medical treatment and health care services.
Workers’ Compensation was billed more than $9.1 million in services that were either not rendered or unnecessary. They paid Anukul and Anurag $7.2 million on claims that the government alleges are fraudulent.
