A Hoffman Estates doctor is facing federal fraud charges after prosecutors accused her of bilking Medicaid and private insurers out of nearly $1 million by submitting claims for services that were never provided to patients.

Mona Ghosh, 50, of Inverness, was indicted on more than a dozen charges of health care fraud, prosecutors announced today.
