The U.S. attorney's office struck a deal with a Miami defendant this week, reducing his prison sentence in exchange for cooperation in a larger fraud prosecution. The defendant pled guilty to laundering funds as part of a massive health care fraud network.
Health care fraud prosecutions can involve much more than one set of charges brought against one person or company. Authorities often won't just pursue charges against those believed to be the main perpetrators of a fraud, but also against others connected to the fraud. This can be seen in the most recent set of charges brought in relation to a Florida health care fraud case.
