Texas healthcare fraud suspects appear in court; accused of billing Medicaid $1.5M

McALLEN โ€” The owner and an employee of a now-closed durable medical equipment, or DME business each made their first appearance before a federal magistrate judge in connection with healthcare fraud charges.

Standing before U.S. Magistrate J. Scott Hacker a day after federal agents made their arrest, Everardo Villarreal and Delilah Rae Robles each learned of the seven charges against them in connection with a scheme that allegedly defrauded a federal and state healthcare benefit program of more than $850,000 โ€” this after submitting more than $1.5 million in claims.
