Carlos Medina, owner of Miami-area medical clinics Doral Community Clinic Inc. and Advanced Medical of Doral Inc. was sentenced to 82 months in prison for his role in a Medicare fraud scheme that caused more than $3 million in losses. The clinics purportedly provided medically necessary services to Medicare beneficiaries, but in reality charged cash kickbacks in exchange for prescriptions for home health care services. Some of the beneficiaries who frequented the clinics did not meet Medicare’s criteria for the prescribed services and some of the services prescribed by the medical professionals at Doral and Advanced Medical were never provided by the home health agencies to which the patients were referred.
