Sleep Center Owner Sentenced

December 27, 2018

A sleep study business owner was sentenced to seven years in prison for health care fraud and tax charges for operating a fraudulent sleep study clinic. She directed her employees to solicit patients who had been referred to her clinic for legitimate sleep studies for supplemental but medically unnecessary studies. To conceal the scheme, she instructed employees not to send the results of the fraudulent studies to the patients’ doctors and lied to patients by telling them they did not have to pay copays or coinsurance.
