A.G. Schneiderman Announces Prison Term Of Up To 21 Years For NYC Medical Supply Company Operator In Medicaid Fraud Scheme
NEW YORK - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced the conviction and sentencing of Humphrey Udeh, 43 of Baldwin, NY, for defrauding Medicaid of over $1 million. Udeh billed the state for over three thousand units of a highly-specialized and expensive liquid pediatric nutritional formula, when he actually dispensed over-the-counter nutritional supplement formulas. New York State Supreme Court Acting Justice John G. Ingram presided over Udeh's jury trial in Supreme Court, Kings County, and today sentenced Udeh, who was convicted of grand larceny and other healthcare fraud-related charges, to serve 7 to 21 years in state prison and pay a $1.7 million fine.
