The Medicare fraud trial of a prominent Florida eye doctor tied to a New Jersey senator’s alleged corruption is set to begin.

Salomon Melgen’s federal trial begins Monday in West Palm Beach. He is accused of stealing up to $190 million from the Medicare program between 2004 and 2013.

Prosecutors say Melgen prescribed unneeded treatments, filed claims for procedures he never performed and charged for medicine he never purchased.

His attorneys have denied the charges.

He faces a bribery trial this fall in New Jersey with Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez.
