Medicare Fraud Suspect Jacques Roy Loses Doctor’s License

Jacques Roy, who’s accused of leading the largest home health-care scam ever organized by an individual physician, has surrendered his Texas medical license.

An order released today by the Texas Medical Board cites both his February arrest on Medicare fraud charges and “allegations he failed to meet the standard of care for two patients.”

No details about those patients’ woes were released. But as I reported in February, Roy has a history of patient harm dating to the 1990s.

“His failures have been linked to at least one patient’s death and another’s permanent loss of sexual function, public records show,” my prior story stated. “The Texas Medical Board, however, let him keep his license despite evidence of persistent misconduct.”

Roy, who lived in Rockwall but is now jailed without bail while awaiting trial, agreed to the new medical board order. He has denied criminal wrongdoing, as have six co-defendants tied to his now-closed DeSoto medical office.
