Louisiana accountant Christopher White was sentenced to 48 months in prison and ordered to pay roughly $2.8 million in restitution for his role in participating in and attempting to cover up a $50 million New Orleans-area Medicare fraud scheme.  According to admissions made in connection with his plea agreement, White coordinated the payment of illegal kickbacks to patient recruiters who canvassed the streets of New Orleans to collect Medicare numbers from elderly and disabled Medicare recipients.  When a grand jury subpoena was issued to certain companies, he and others fabricated and backdated tax and employment records to conceal the fact that illegal kickbacks were being paid to these recruiters.  DOJ
