Former hospital executive sentenced to prison for healthcare fraud
Compliance Monitor, July 13, 2011
A former chief financial officer who pleaded guilty to bilking about $200,000 from hospitals in Ohio and Connecticut was sentenced Monday to a maximum 33 months in a federal prison, three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay restitution, the Department of Justice said.
William Roe, 55, had been the CFO at St. Rita's Hospital in Lima, OH, from 2006-2009, and the CFO of Danbury Hospital in Danbury CT from 2009-2010.
From 2008-2010, Roe used a company he'd created called Cycle Software Solutions to defraud both St. Rita's Hospital and Danbury Hospital by billing them for $75,000 and $95,000, respectively, for nonexistent software and services. Roe also billed Danbury Hospital for another $25,000, but that payment was stopped, DOJ said.
