Lawsuit filed against Somerset eye doctor

SOMERSET, Ky. (WKYT/WKYT) - The U.S. Attorney's Office has filed a lawsuit against a Somerset eye doctor and his practice, claiming he defrauded Medicare and Medicaid.

The lawsuit claims Dr. Philip Robinson and "Associates In Eye Care P.S.C." sought and received payment from the two programs for unnecessary eye exams and services he didn't provide.

The lawsuit says Robinson visited nursing homes and claimed he treated more than 100 patients in a single day. However, the lawsuit claims that isn't possible.
