Judge sets trial date for chemotherapy fraud case

SUMMIT — A federal judge has set a Feb. 7 trial date for a doctor and two others charged in a massive chemotherapy fraud case that authorities say swindled millions from Medicaid and Medicare.

Dr. Meera Sachdeva, founder of Rose Cancer Center in Summit, and two others are charged with numerous federal crimes for allegedly participating in a scheme to dilute chemotherapy drugs and bill for bigger amounts. The clinic also allegedly used old needles on multiple patients.

Sachdeva has been held without bond since her August arrest. She has pleaded not guilty.

The clinic’s former office manager, 24-year-old Brittany McCoskey of Monticello, and a former billing agent, 43-year-old Monica Weeks of Madison, have pleaded not guilty and are free on bond.

The trial had been scheduled for Oct. 17.
