Lombard dermatologist gets 7-year prison term for insurance fraud

Dr. Robert V. Kolbusz, a Lombard dermatologist, was sentenced to seven years in jail Friday for insurance fraud.
Kolbusz, 58, who operated the Center for Dermatology and Skin at 2500 S. Highland Ave. in Lombard, submitted "hundreds of false insurance claims for alleged skin cancer treatment that was unnecessary or never performed," the government claimed.
Kolbusz was also ordered to make $3.76 million in restitution payments at his Chicago sentencing.
The government alleged Kolbusz submitted false insurance and Medicare claims that said he was treating pre-cancerous lesions. But instead, his staff, including non-medical staffers, conducted routine cosmetic procedures on patients that weren't covered by insurance.
