Detroit husband and wife convicted in $2.3 million Medicare fraud scheme

Compliance Monitor, September 1, 2010

A Detroit federal jury convicted the owner of a purported injection and infusion clinic and his wife of fraudulently billing Medicare for $2.3 million, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release.

Juan De Oleo owned Xpress Center, Inc. (XPC), an outpatient clinic that specialized in injection and infusion therapies. De Oleo enlisted his wife Rosa Genao, MD, to help falsify medical records, according to the DOJ. Genao wrote fictitious symptoms in patients’ charts in order to justify billing Medicare for frivolous and expensive medications.

Medicare paid approximately $1.7 million of the $2.3 million submitted by XPC.
