FORT WAYNE, In. (www.incnow.tv) --- Federal agents served search warrants at four locations owned and operated by Dr. William Hedrick Wednesday.

Dr. Hedrick currently has a suspended license and is due back before the Medical Licensing Board of Indiana in February. The State Attorney General’s office has accused Hedrick of dangerous prescribing practices leading to the deaths of seven patients.

Wednesday the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General confirmed they had agents searching Upright MRI, Health Now Urgent Care and Centers for Pain Relief.

These locations are all owned and operated by InQuest Health, a company owned by Dr. William Hedrick.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General is a federal agency that investigates fraud, waste and abuse of programs that are part of HHS, including Medicare and Medicaid.

Wednesday the Allen County Prosecutor’s office said the raids were part of an ongoing investigation by the Indiana Attorney General Office’s Medicaid Fraud Unit, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General and the Drug Enforcement Agency.

The Allen County Prosecutor’s office says no criminal charges have been filed yet as a part of this investigation.
