Co-owner of SoCal medical supply firms sentenced in Medicare fraud case

Co-owner of medical supply firms sentenced in Medicare fraud case - The Daily Breeze:

"The co-owner of two Southern California medical supply companies was sentenced Monday to 42 months in federal prison for attempting to con Medicare out of about $20 million through phony claims.

U.S. District Judge Stephen V. Wilson also ordered 51-year-old Camillus Ehigie, a Nigerian citizen who lives in Woodland Hills, to pay $7 million in restitution and to serve three years of supervised release after completing his prison term, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Ehigie - who co-owned and operated Prosperity Home Health Services Inc., a home health agency, and Caravan Medical Supplies Inc., a durable medical equipment firm - pleaded guilty to multiple health care fraud charges.

A federal jury in Los Angeles found co-defendant Evans Oniha, 49, of Rancho Palos Verdes guilty last year of one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, four counts of health care fraud and one count of false statements relating to health care matters."
