A judge in a federal fraud case has ordered an Edmond couple to pay $268,796 in restitution to the state’s Medicaid program.
Lawrence Vasquez, 62, and his wife, Eunja L. Vasquez, 56, operated Mercy Diabetic Supply Inc. in Oklahoma City.
They were accused in a 115-count indictment of submitting false Medicaid claims for reimbursement to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority for insulin pump supplies. Some claims involved people who didn’t have diabetes.
Lawrence Vasquez pleaded guilty in June to one felony fraud count. He was sentenced Thursday to 20 months in federal prison.
