UPDATE: Stateline Doctor Pleads Not Guilty To Fraud Charges

ROCKFORD - Dr. Charles DeHaan says he's not guilty of defrauding Medicare.

UPDATE (2/13/14): DeHaan pled not guilty during an arraignment hearing in federal court Wednesday.  A status hearing is set for April 3.

ROCKFORD - A federal grand jury indicts a Rockford doctor saying he tried to defraud the state.

Dr. Charles DeHaan, 59, is charged with nine counts of engaging in a scheme to defraud Medicare.  DeHaan would bill Medicare for in-home patient care.  However, the indictment claims those visits never took place.

For the visits DeHaan did actually make, the grand jury believes it was during those times he had sexual contact or attempted to have sex with his patients.

Also, the indictment says DeHaan billed for medical services knowing it didn't qualify for reimbursement. 

DeHaan is scheduled to appear for arraignment Wednesday at 10am at the Federal Courthouse in downtown Rockford.

Each of the nine counts of fraud carries a maximum 10 years in prison plus a fine of up to $250,000.
