Two Fake Ortho Companies Involved in $48M Health Care Fraud Scheme

Loyda Triana, a Florida woman, has pled guilty to her role in a Miami health care fraud scheme involving five fraudulent medical supply companies. Triana pled guilty to her role in the scheme that involved at least 15 other individuals. According to the plea agreement, from July 2017 through November 2019 Triana laundered $735,695.

Triana played only a small part in this scheme. According to the Department of Justice Press release, the fake companies, including two that posed as orthopedic companies, “billed Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurers more than $48 million for medical equipment the companies never actually purchased and never actually provided to any patients.”

The fake medical supply companies involved in the scheme included the following: BF Distributors Corp, Timely Medical Services Corp., Ortho-Med Solution Inc., Expedited Medical Supplies Corp., and Prime Orthopedic Solutions Corp.
