Defendants admitted to conspiring to defraud Medicare at HIV infusion clinics

WASHINGTON, June 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Four Miami-area residents were sentenced today in connection with a $10 million Medicare fraud scheme involving HIV infusion clinics, Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal Division and U.S. Attorney R. Alexander Acosta of the Southern District of Florida announced.

Alexis Dagnesses, 44; Gonzalo Nodarse, 38; Alexis Carrazana, 41; and Dr. Carlos Garrido, 69, all pleaded guilty in March 2009 to one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud before U.S. District Judge Paul C. Huck.

Today, Judge Huck sentenced Dagnesses to 90 months in prison, to be followed by a three-year-term of supervised release. Dagnesses was also ordered to pay $12.4 million in restitution.
