Tamara Esponda, owner of Miami-area pharmacy Biomax Pharmacy Inc., was sentenced to 42 months in prison and to pay roughly $1.6 million in restitution for her role in the submission of more than $1.5 million in fraudulent claims to Medicare Part D.  According to admissions made in connection with Esponda’s guilty plea, Biomax Pharmacy submitted fraudulent claims to Medicare for prescription drugs that were not prescribed by physicians, not medically necessary and not provided to Medicare beneficiaries.  Esponda further admitted that in perpetrating this fraud she and her accomplices used the beneficiaries’ and doctors’ Medicare identification numbers without their consent.  DOJ
