Another Co-Conspirator Pleads Guilty to Medicare Fraud at Detroit Clinics

November 2, 2009

Friday Daisy Martinez pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the Medicare program, says DoJ, following earlier guilty pleas by co-defendants Jose Rosario, Lil Vargas-Arias, and Arnaldo Rosario in related Detroit cases previously reported by FraudBlawg here, here, here, and here. Martinez operated various bogus Medicare clinics in the Detroit area, including Sacred Hope Medical Center, Inc.; Xpress Center, Inc.; and Dearborn Rehab Center. The conspiracy involved falsifying Medicare documents, bribing Medicare beneficiaries with cash and narcotics prescriptions, and billing Medicare for unnecesary and phantom procedures, resulting in nearly $11 million in false payments by Medicare. Martinez faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
