February 20, 2018 - The Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) has summarily suspended the medical license of Bloomfield Hills physician Johnny Ray Trotter II.
On November 8, 2017, Trotter was convicted of felonious health care fraud conspiracy and health care fraud for more than $28 million in cash and property. Once notified of a conviction, LARA opens a file, conducts an investigation and drafts the administrative complaint against a licensee.
The Michigan Public Health Code requires the summary suspension of a license when a licensee is convicted of a felony.
From approximately May 2008 to May 2014, Trotter worked with several co-conspirators to submit false and fraudulent claims to Medicare for services that were not medically necessary and were never rendered.
An order of summary suspension is a temporary measure to protect the public and not a final determination that a licensee has violated the Public Health Code.
