Naturopath Mark Chan Monwai, 42, pleaded guilty in King County Superior Court on July 17 to two counts of filing a false insurance claim in connection with his Kirkland medical practice.
The judge sentenced Monwai to repay the insurance companies for the false claims. The amount will be determined at a later date. He must also pay $600 in court costs and fees and perform 240 hours of community service over the next year.
Monwai was charged in April 2015 with first- and second-degree identity theft and two counts of filing false insurance claims after an investigation by Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU).
