Case update: Ohio doctor sentenced to 5-year prison term

Dr. Timothy Manuel, a Highland County physician who improperly prescribed opioids to injured workers, was sentenced Thursday to five years in prison and ordered to pay $12,060 in restitution to BWC.

Manuel, 59, was the subject of a joint investigation by BWC and the Ohio Board of Pharmacy that found he prescribed large amounts of medically-unnecessary oxycodone to numerous patients while working as a doctor at Hillsboro Urgent Care in southwestern Ohio. He also billed BWC for medical services that weren’t provided.

Manuel was taken into custody following his sentencing in the Highland County Court of Common Pleas. Read more on the case in this Hillsboro Times Gazette article.
