Amalya Cherniavsky and her husband Vladislav Tcherniavsky, the former owner and former operator of California-based durable medical equipment supply company JC Medical Supply were sentenced for their roles in a $1.5 million Medicare fraud scheme. They were ordered to pay $614,418 in restitution and Tcherniavsky was ordered to serve 51 months in prison. The evidence at trial demonstrated that they paid illegal kickbacks to patient recruiters in exchange for patient referrals and paid kickbacks to physicians for fraudulent prescriptions—primarily for expensive, medically unnecessary power wheelchairs—which the defendants then used to support fraudulent bills to Medicare.
