The former owner, operator and managers of Southern California ambulance company ProMed Medical Transportation were sentenced to prison for their role in a fraud scheme that resulted in more than $1.5 million in fraudulent claims to Medicare.  Yaroslav Proshak (aka Steven Proshak) was sentenced to serve 108 months in prison.  On December 2, Emilia Zverev and Sharetta Michelle Wallace were sentenced to serve 36 and 24 months, respectively.  In addition, Zverev and Wallace were ordered to pay restitution jointly and severally with Proshak in the amount of $804,755.  The evidence at trial showed that the defendants conspired to bill Medicare for ambulance transportation services for individuals that did not need such services.  The defendants also instructed ProMed EMTs to conceal the patients’ true medical conditions by altering paperwork and creating fraudulent documents to justify the services.  DOJ
