Date:5/28/2008

Rita Campos Ramirez was sentenced in the Southern

District of Florida to 10 years in prison and three years of supervised

release for her role in a $170 million scheme to defraud Medicare. She

was also sentenced to forfeit $207,000, her three homes and an

automobile; and pay $105 million in restitution to the U.S. Department

of Health and Human Services. Campos Ramirez pleaded guilty to

conspiracy to commit health care fraud and submitting false claims to

Medicare in August 2007, admitting that between October 2002 and April

2006 she owned and operated a medical billing company that specialized

in submitting bills to the Medicare program on behalf of HIV infusion

clinics. Campos admitted that she knowingly submitted approximately

$170 million in fraudulent medical bills to Medicare on behalf of 75 HIV

infusion clinics in Miami-Dade County that were part of the scheme. The

Medicare program paid approximately $105 million of the $170 million in

fraudulent bills submitted by Campos, with Campos personally receiving

$5 million for her role in the fraud.

-- On May 8, 2008, David Gabrielyan and Marina Nazarova, owners of U.S.

care fraud conspiracy, eight counts of health care fraud, and one count

of forfeiture. From February 2007 to March 2008, Gabrielyan, Nazarova

and others allegedly conspired to defraud the Medicare Program by

submitting or causing the submission of more than $2 million in claims,

resulting in payments totaling approximately $1.59 million, falsely
