Argentinean doctor allegedly bilks $1M in health insurance claims in Hawaii

BUENOS AIRES (HawaiiNewsNow) - An Argentinean doctor is federal custody for allegedly bilking one million dollars in health insurance claims in Hawaii.

The FBI nabbed Dr. Carlos Livio Warter on Monday at his home in Buenos Aires.

He's accused of over-billing Medicaid and other government programs for counseling sessions.

According to officials, Livio left Hawaii when a federal grand jury indicted him in December.

He was forced to surrender his medical license in February.
