Juan Carlos Delgado and Nereyda Infante, who owned and operated several Orlando-based health care clinics under variations of the name Prestige Medical, were sentenced to five years in prison and to pay $1,520,850 in restitution and forfeit $1,520,850 for their role in a $2.4 million health care fraud scheme. According to admissions made in connection with their guilty pleas, between February 2012 and September 2014, the defendants fraudulently billed Medicare on behalf of the Prestige clinics for services never provided and for medications not prescribed or administered. In particular, Delgado and Infante admitted to billing Medicare for pentostatin, an expensive anticancer chemotherapeutic medication used to treat Leukemia, despite never administering the drug. DOJ
