In October 2009, a California State arrest warrant was issued for Gurgen Tsaturyan on charges of grand theft, identity theft, and false or fraudulent claims.
Tsaturyan was the owner and operator of Sun Valley Medical Supply, a durable medical equipment (DME) company based in Los Angeles, California.
From December 2008 until February 2009, Tsaturyan, through Sun Valley Medical Supply, allegedly billed Medicare for approximately $1.1 million and was paid over $500,000 for orthotic supplies that were never provided to Medicare patients.
Interviews with doctors whose identities were used by Sun Valley Medical Supply revealed that they did not write prescriptions or refer patients for DME.
Investigators also interviewed Medicare patients whose identities were used to bill for orthotics by Sun Valley Medical Supply. Patients stated that they had never heard of Sun Valley Medical Supply or the referring doctors or received any of the items Sun Valley billed for.
Tsaturyan remains a fugitive at large.
