$15M SoCal Medicare fraud case ends after six years

AP/San Francisco Chronicle, May 27, 2010
The last of 17 defendants in a $15 million Medicare fraud scheme has been sentenced, ending six years of litigation for federal authorities who uncovered the scam. The U.S. attorney's office says Medicare patients at board and care homes throughout Southern California were given unnecessary respiratory tests. Doctors sometimes gave their patients soda, candy, and cigarettes, then pocketed Medicare payments. Owners of the facilities were among those getting kickbacks.
