Three plead guilty in Amtrak OIG-supported health care fraud investigation
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – An owner of several shell companies purported to be laboratory marketing companies and two employees pleaded guilty to their roles in a health care fraud scheme in Federal Court recently.
Since 2014, special agents from Amtrak’s Office of Inspector General have been supporting the FBI-led Greater Palm Beach Health Care Fraud Task Force in its ongoing investigation into a series of complex insurance and health care fraud schemes in Florida. Amtrak’s insurance providers were fraudulently billed as result of some of these schemes. To date, the actions of the task force have resulted in 18 convictions of individuals involved in health care related crimes in Southern Florida.
