Former Most Wanted Fugitive Sentenced to 36 Months in Prison for Multi-Million Dollar Health Care Fraud: Long Island Company Defrauded Medicare and Medicaid of Millions of Dollars for Medical Supplies Never Provided to Patients
Earlier today, at the federal courthouse in Central Islip, Etienne Allonce, the former co-owner of Medical Solutions Management, Inc. (MSM), a durable medical equipment supplier in Hicksville, New York, was sentenced by United States Circuit Judge Joseph F. Bianco to 36 months' imprisonment for health care fraud. The Court also ordered Allonce to pay $4,444,468 in restitution. Allonce pleaded guilty in April 2019. In September 2018, Allonce was expelled from Haiti where he had fled 11 years earlier shortly before his indictment in the Eastern District of New York. 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).
