Former pain clinic owner indicted

An anesthesiologist from Louisa who is also the former owner of two eastern Kentucky pain clinics, has been incited by a Lawrence County Grand Jury.

Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway says Lee Adam Balaklaw was indicted on 20 counts of Medicaid fraud following an investigation into his billing practices at Anesthesia Associates of Louisa.

The indictment alleges that Balaklaw intentionally or wantonly submitted fraudulent and false claims to Medicaid by claiming he treated multiple patients using pain treatment injections into the tendon. These types of injections are called trigger point injections.

The charges allege that from January 2007 through July 2010, Balaklaw fraudulently billed $90,000 for the 29 patients.

A warrant has been issued for Balaklaw’s arrest and his bond will be set at $5,000 cash.
