Austin, Cedar Park men convicted in healthcare fraud case

Posted

A pair of Austin psychologists were found guilty this month of conspiracy and fraud in a healthcare kickback scheme. A 68-year-old Cedar Park man pleaded guilty earlier in the case.

William Joseph Dubin, a 73-year-old physician, was convicted last week along with his 33-year-old son, David Fox Dubin. Both were implicated in a scheme involving healthcare kickbacks, offering to pay and paying illegal kickbacks, healthcare fraud, and the elder Dubin was also found guilty of one count of aggravated identity theft. 

The third defendant, Glen Elwood McKenzie of Cedar Park, acted as a patient recruiter. McKenzie previously pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to violate the federal anti-kickback law and one count of receiving an illegal kickback.

McKenzie was the President of the Board of Directors of an emergency shelter house located approximately eighty miles from Austin that provided temporary shelter for crisis intervention and mental health services to children and youth ages 5 to 17 who had been removed from their homes by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

William Dubin faces up to five years in federal prison for each count related to illegal kickbacks. David Dubin faces up to ten years in federal prison for each count related to health care fraud, and a consecutive mandatory two-year term in federal prison for the count related to aggravated identity theft. 

Both Dubins remain on bond pending sentencing scheduled for Feb. 19, 2019.
