In January 2017, Angel Lagoa was indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and wire fraud. Investigators believe that, from 2010 to 2015, Lagoa and his co-conspirators submitted approximately $30 million in false or fraudulent claims to Medicare.
Lagoa owned Trinity Senior Care, Inc., located in Miami, Florida, but concealed his true ownership by using a nominee owner. According to the investigation, Lagoa and his co-conspirators paid illegal kickbacks to patient recruiters in exchange for beneficiary information. They then billed Medicare for services that were neither medically necessary nor ordered by a physician.
