A federal jury in Los Angeles convicted Amalya Cherniavsky and her husband, Vladislav Tcherniavsky, for conspiracy to commit health care fraud in connection with a $1.5 million Medicare fraud scheme.  The evidence at trial demonstrated that Cherniavsky owned JC Medical Supply, a purported durable medical equipment supply company, and that she co-operated the company with her husband, Tcherniavsky, and that they paid illegal kickbacks to patient recruiters in exchange for patient referrals.  The evidence further showed that the defendants paid kickbacks to physicians for fraudulent prescriptions – primarily for expensive, medically unnecessary power wheelchairs – which the defendants then used to support fraudulent bills to Medicare.  DOJ
