If a Physician has' standing orders for testing, without necessity is considered healthcare fraud?

Physician's standing orders for unnecessary testing:

In one instance, a physician became the medical director of an addiction treatment facility and authorized "standing orders" for hundreds of millions of dollars worth of unnecessary tests; never to have actually read the test report. In return, the physician required the treatment facility to have their patients treated at his clinic.  Healthcare employers and healthcare whistleblowers should be on the lookout for physician's standing orders for testing every patient unnecessarily only to generate extra Medicare or insurance compensated revenue dollars.
