Three confess to role in South Florida Medicare fraud

Miami Herald, September 2, 2008

Three supporting players in a South Florida Medicare scheme have pleaded guilty to charges of fleecing millions from the federal health insurance program. The three—a physician, a clinic administrator and a money launderer—admitted in separate plea deals last week that they aided an elaborate conspiracy to bill $110 million in false Medicare claims. Others involved in their alleged Medicare scam, which authorities said included a vast network of straw owners, professional patients, and kickback payments, are cutting plea deals and cooperating with prosecutors.
