Former Most Wanted Fugitive Pleads Guilty to Multi-Million Dollar Health Care Fraud
Earlier today, at the federal courthouse in Central Islip, Etienne Allonce, the former co-owner of Medical Solutions Management, Inc. (MSM), a medical equipment company in Hicksville, New York, pleaded guilty to health care fraud. In September 2018, Allonce was expelled from Haiti where he had fled 11 years earlier following the filing of an indictment in the Eastern District of New York charging him with billing Medicare and Medicaid for medical supplies never delivered to patients and never ordered by MSM. Prior to his return to the United States, Allonce was placed on the Most Wanted List of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG). Allonce pleaded guilty before United States District Judge Joseph F. Bianco.
