Patients Bribed With Narcotic Scripts; Another Guilty Plea in Michigan Medicare Fraud

January 14, 2010

Ingrid Mazorra plead guilty to conspiracy to commit health fraud, according to the DoJ. Mazorra admitted in September 2006 that she agreed to help operate a fraudulent infusion and injection clinic, called Xpress Center Inc. in Livonia, Michigan. Medicare was billed for unnecessary services or services that were never provided to Medicare beneficiaries who were recruited by Mazzorra and paid with cash kickbacks and narcotic prescriptions. Mazorra, clinic manager, admitted to creating false patient files and other false documents to conceal the fraud at the clinic. The clinic submitted $2.3 million in fraudulent claims to Medicare, and Medicare paid approximately $1.8 million on those claims. Mazorra may face 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Fraudblawg has followed this developing story since its inception and previously reported here, here, here, here, and here.
