Investigation Details

In November 2009, Barbaro Ortega and Raul Camejo were indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and health care fraud. Investigators believe that Ortega, Camejo, and their co-conspirators filed and caused to be filed approximately $3.3 million in false Medicare claims for durable medical equipment (DME) that was medically unnecessary or was not provided to beneficiaries.

Ortega, Camejo, and Secundino Perez operated and controlled Maidelyn Medical Equipment Corporation, based in Virginia Gardens, Florida. Maidelyn Medical purportedly provided DME, including wound therapy pumps, to beneficiaries. According to the indictment, the three defendants submitted and caused the submission of claims to Medicare using the identification information of physicians who had not examined, treated, or prescribed DME to the beneficiaries for whom the claims were being submitted. Consequently, Medicare provided $972,413 in reimbursement.

On May 7, 2010, Perez was sentenced to 2 years and 7 months in prison and ordered to pay $972,413 in restitution.
