Insurance Fraud Strikes South Florida Medicare Market

Thought to have escaped to Cuba, suspects Garcia, Ramirez, and Hernandez are wanted for various counts of Medicare fraud in South Florida.

The problem with these cases is that once immigrants return to Cuba, it is very difficult to get them back again, and they walk away with millions of tax payer’s dollars. What needs to change to prevent this type of crime from continuing to occur? Get other health insurance tips here.
