Miami man gets 22 years for Medicare fraud

Miami Herald, January 28, 2010

A Miami man who used his chain of Medicare clinics to commit fraud and exported the business to other Southern states was sentenced in federal court to 22 years in prison. The organization run by Michel De Jesus Huarte expanded to Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, and South Carolina by using empty storefronts and post office boxes, according to an indictment. Huarte and his associates, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy and other fraud charges last year, collected about $25 million from the federal healthcare program, the Miami Herald reports.
