Ex-Rose Cancer doctor, billing agent expected to plead guilty

SUMMIT — A cancer doctor and a billing agent are expected to plead guilty today to charges related to an alleged scheme to dilute chemotherapy drugs and use old needles on multiple patients.

Dr. Meera Sachdeva, Brittany McCoskey and Monica Weeks were indicted last August on charges including conspiracy and witness tampering related to activities of Rose Cancer Center in Summit.

Sachdeva, who established the clinic, and Weeks are scheduled for plea change hearings this afternoon in U.S. District Court in Jackson.

McCoskey, an office manager, pleaded guilty May 17 to one count of fraud and awaits sentencing.

Authorities say the clinic diluted drugs and billed Medicaid, Medicare and insurance companies for more chemotherapy drugs than patients received. The clinic billed Medicaid and Medicare for about $15.1 million during the alleged scheme.
