Three Miami Physicians and Three Medical Workers Charged With $10 Million Medicare Fraud Scheme
Date:2/13/2009

r charged with distributing the proceeds of the fraud through a series of financial transactions involving more that $10,000 in tainted funds.

The indictment alleges that the physicians at Midway Medical billed more than $10 million to the Medicare program for services that were medically unnecessary and not actually provided between September 2002 and June 2005. During that time frame, Medicare paid more than $4.8 million on those fraudulent claims submitted by Midway Medical. If convicted on all charges, Del Cueto, Rodriguez, Garrido and Nodarse each face maximum prison sentences of 50 years. Carrazana and Dagnesses face 10 year maximum terms in prison.

An indictment is merely a charge and defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

The case is being prosecuted by Trial Attorney John K. Neal and Deputy Chief Kirk Ogrosky of the Criminal Division's Fraud Section. The case was investigated by the FBI and the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General. The case was brought as part of the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, supervised by the Criminal Division's Fraud Section and U.S. Attorney Acosta of the Southern District of Florida. Since strike force operations began in March 2007, 107 cases including 196 defendants have been indicted. Collectively, these defendants are alleged to have fraudulently billed the Medicare program for more than $600 million.
