Sober homes owner sentenced in Amtrak OIG-supported health care fraud case
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The owner of several now-defunct sober homes was sentenced to more than 5 years in prison and ordered to pay over $2 million in restitution recently for his role in a health care fraud conspiracy.
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 a result of these schemes. To date, the actions of the task force have resulted in 18 convictions of individuals involved in health care related crimes.
