MIAMI NURSE SENTENCED IN MEDICARE FRAUD

Photobucket MIAMI, FLORIDA (AUGUST 10, 2011) – A Miami nurse, Armando Santos, 46, received 10 years imprisonment from his role in a scheme that saw $11 million in fraudulent claims made to Medicare.
Between 2007 and 2009, as an employee of Ideal Home Health company, Santos billed Medicare for services given to Medicare beneficiaries that were either not medically necessary or that were never given, including giving insulin injections to two patients that did not need insulin. Santos worked with the owners of the home health company, Elizabeth Acosta Sanz and Luis Alejandro Sanz in perpetrating the fraud. Of the $11 million in bogus claims filed, $7 million was received.
