Investigation Details

In June 2012, Pedro Luis Perez was indicted on charges of health care fraud and aggravated identity theft.

RP Best Choice Corp., a durable medical equipment (DME) company, owned by Pedro Luis Perez, fraudulently billed for Medicare patients who lived out of State and had never been to Texas. The majority of the patients were from Florida. Perez's company billed Medicare by falsely claiming that doctors in McAllen, Texas, whose billing information he had stolen, had referred their patients to RP Best Choice for DME.

From January 2010 through August 2011, RP Best Choice Corp. was paid over $520,000 in fraudulent Medicare reimbursements for equipment never provided to patients.

Investigators believe that Perez never resided in McAllen, Texas, and operated his business from Miami, Florida.
