The operator of Georgia-based durable medical equipment company Wilmington Island Medical Inc. has been sentenced to two years in prison and ordered to pay about $550,000 in restitution for paying kickbacks to doctors and nurse practitioners in exchange for signed orders and then billing those orders to Medicare.  The judgment against Patrick Wolfe is part of an ongoing investigation by the Southern District of Georgia to crack down on more than $1.5 billion in losses to Medicare and Medicaid originating from the district.  So far a total of thirty-one individuals and companies have been charged.  USAO SDGA
