A doctor previously suspended for trading prescription drugs for sex has now been ordered to pay back almost $125,000 for medical services he did not perform.
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba censured Dr. Randy Raymond Allan on April 25. He's to repay Manitoba Health $124,726 plus an additional $5,589.95 to cover the costs of the college’s investigation.
The college found that Allan and a nurse practitioner made an arrangement in 2008, when both were employed at Four Rivers Medical Clinic, that Allan would use his billing number for patient house calls that the nurse practitioner performed.
Allan then split the fees with the nurse practitioner and the clinic.
"Dr. Allan did not place any restrictions on the type of patient or type of health concern which the nurse practitioner could deal with during the visits for which he assumed responsibility," said the college in its written decision.
"At the outset of the supervision arrangements, Dr. Allan attended the patient visit with the nurse practitioner. After a few weeks, when he became comfortable with the quality of service being provided by the nurse practitioner, Dr. Allan no longer attended the patient encounters."
Allan was suspended in 2012 after he pleaded guilty to professional misconduct charges related to giving female patients OxyContin prescriptions in exchange for sex.
