California Supreme Court Denies Sim Hoffman, M.D.'s Petition For Review And Depublication Request
By Lonce Lamonte - February 14, 2018

Today, February 14th 2018, Sim Hoffman, M.D.’s Petition for Review and De-Publication Request was denied by the California Supreme Court. 

Now this case of workers’ compensation billing fraud of the People vs. Sim Hoffman, M.D. and Thomas Heric, M.D. will return to the Orange County Superior Court, the court room of the Honorable Richard King, and will proceed to trial. 

Disposition, Hoffman vs. Superior Court (PEOPLE)
Case Number: S245814


Buena Park radiologist, Sim Hoffman, was indicted in May of 2011 with 884 counts pertaining to his egregious workers’ compensation claims billing frauds.  His frauds consisted of billings for single fiber EMGs, which are very rare procedures never performed on workers’ compensation patients, 3D MRIs for which he didn’t even have the software, patient interpreting fraud for which the interpreter was not even aware he’d done an interpreting job let alone had his license number used on the billing, and bogus sleep studies for which Dr. Thomas Heric wrote meaningless reports. 

The indictment was dismissed in December of 2013 on a successful 995 Motion by Hoffman’s defense team citing Johnson error.  Johnson error occurs when the prosecution fails to present exculpatory evidence to the grand jury.  It was alleged that the prosecutor, Shaddi Kamiabipour, failed to disclose to the grand jury the fact that Dr. Hoffman reimbursed State Compensation Insurance Fund the amount of $75,000 for overbillings.
