Medicare Fraud Roundup: 53 Indicted in Detroit

A federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Michigan returned indictments last week against 53 doctors, business owners, executives, assistants, and purported patients in a mass area sweep of alleged Medicare fraud-feasors. According to Attorney General Holder, the fraud has spread like a disease across the country: “Ten of the defendants named in the indictments unsealed today are alleged to have brought their fraud schemes from Miami to Detroit,” he said. “After we arrested and charged criminals in Miami, their cohorts simply moved their schemes to Detroit.” Read summaries of the indictments released by the Motor City Medicare Fraud Strike Force here and a related indictment of some of the Miami defendants, here.
