More Sentenced For Medicare Fraud
Posted in: Medicare/Medicaid on January 11th, 2012

medicare fraudRecent news reports surface around several more individuals who have been charged and convicted of Medicare fraud. As Social Security benefits become tightened and the fate of several programs up in the air, many people are resorting to criminal measures to get help.

Judge And Jury

A Los Angeles woman plead guilty to committing $6.2 million in Medicare fraud. The woman admitted to fraudulently obtaining a physician’s personal information to print phony prescriptions. She and several others used Los Angeles based clinics as the fake front for writing and selling fraudulent prescriptions for pricey medical equipment.  The woman was sentenced to pay the $6.2 million in restitution and serve five years in prison.

Sadly, Medicare fraud comes in many forms such as the case described. As far as consumers are concerned acts such as filing for services never used, billing Medicare for equipment never received or obtaining and selling goods and services are all considered fraud. Securing services through misleading means or by using fraudulent personal information is also Medicare fraud.  Those convicted stand to face serious consequences including jail time.
