In another indictment involving a similar scheme, Jose Garcia, 53, and Nayda Freire, 60, allegedly conspired between April 2003 and November 2003 to submit approximately $10.9 million in false and fraudulent claims to the Medicare program for HIV infusion services allegedly provided at Global Med-Care Corp., an HIV infusion clinic operated by Garcia and Freire. As part of the scheme, Garcia, Freire and their co-conspirators also allegedly retained physicians and physicians' assistants at Global Med-Care to make it appear legitimate HIV infusion services were being provided and to train the physicians to make it appear that legitimate and appropriate medical services were being provided. They would then cause the payment of cash kickbacks to beneficiaries who signed documents stating they had received the non-existent and medically unnecessary treatments. The indictment also alleges that Garcia and Freire laundered the proceeds of their crimes by sending proceeds to sham management and marketing companies owned and controlled by their co-conspirators.
