Leonard Austin pleaded guilty for his role in a multi-million dollar health care fraud and money laundering scheme. According to his plea agreement, Austin and his co-conspirators submitted $12 million in fraudulent claims to Medicare through three purported health clinics, Cornerstone Health Specialists, Summit Health Specialists P.L. and Coastal Health Specialists LLC, all located in Florida. These fraudulent claims included claims resulting from illegal kickback arrangements and claims for radiology, audiology, neurology, and cardiology services that were never rendered. Austin admitted that he and his co-conspirators attempted to conceal the funds by transferring funds through bank accounts for the clinics and Austin’s shell company, BONB LLC, aka BioScan, and other entities.
