Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—February 24, 2015. A Miami man pleaded guilty today to health care fraud charges in connection with a $5 million scheme to defraud Medicare.
Angel M. Mirabal, 62, of Miami, Florida, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and health care fraud before U.S. District Judge Marcia G. Cooke of the Southern District of Florida. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for May 6, 2015.
In connection with his guilty plea, Mirabal admitted that he was the owner, president and manager of Quick Solutions Medical Supplies Inc. (Quick Solutions), a durable medical equipment (DME) supply company located in Houston, Texas. Mirabel further admitted that from April 2010 through July 2013, he and his co-conspirators operated Quick Solutions for the purpose of billing the Medicare program for, among other things, expensive DME that was medically unnecessary and in many instances not provided to the Medicare beneficiaries. Indeed, many of the beneficiaries who purportedly received the DME resided hundreds of miles away in Miami.
