Olufunke Ibiyemi Fadojutimi, a registered nurse and former owner of Lutemi Medical Supply, a durable medical equipment (DME) supply company, was found guilty of health care fraud relating to a 10-year scheme in which Medicare was fraudulently billed more than $8 million for DME that was not medically necessary. The trial evidence showed that between September 2003 and January 2013, Fadojutimi and others paid cash kickbacks to patient recruiters and physicians for fraudulent prescriptions for DME, such as power wheelchairs, that the Medicare patients did not actually need.
