A former physician has been charged following an Ontario Provincial Police investigation into allegations of “inappropriate billings.”

The OPP’s Anti-Rackets Branch-Health Fraud Investigation Unit opened its investigation after a member of the public contacted the Ministry of Health tip line to report a physician was “allegedly obtaining medications from third parties whom he had wrote fraudulent prescriptions for.”

The billings were allegedly made to the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) and the Ontario Drug Benefit Program.

The MOH reported the allegations to the OPP.

Victor Rogozovsky, 34, of Vaughan, faces charges under the Criminal Code and Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, including three counts each of fraud under $5,000 and trafficking in a controlled substance.
