Durable Medical Equipment Company Owners Sentenced For Their Role In Health Care Fraud

February 2, 2010

According to the DoJ, Gevork Kartashyan and Eliza Shubaralyan were sentenced to two years in prison and to pay $400,000 in restitution. Kartahyan and Shubaralyan owned a DME company that fraudulently billed Medicare for expensive wheelchairs, as well as promising its patients vitamins and diabetic shoes for their Medicare beneficiary numbers. Their patients did not know they would be receiving power wheelchairs and the promises made were never delivered to the patients. Doctors testified that they never authorized the wheelchair prescriptions and in some instances never worked for the company.
