On July 7, 2009, Jahaziel Garcia Gonzalez was indicted on charges of health care fraud and forfeiture. Investigators believe that through his company, Gonzalez submitted nearly $2.4 million in false claims to Medicare for durable medical equipment (DME) items and services that were not prescribed by doctors or provided as claimed.
Gonzalez controlled and operated A & L Professional, Inc., a DME company based in Miami, Florida. According to the indictment, from around October 2008 to around March 2009, Gonzalez allegedly submitted or caused the submission of numerous false claims to Medicare on behalf of A & L Professional for powered air mattresses, non-disposable pump canisters, and other DME that was not prescribed by doctors or provided as claimed.
Medicare reimbursed A & L Professional nearly $1 million for these false claims. Gonzalez allegedly transferred these funds from A & L Professional's corporate bank account to himself and others.
An arrest warrant for Gonzalez was issued in July 2009, but he could not be located. Gonzalez remains at large.
