BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Four people from Baton Rouge are now facing Medicare fraud charges.
Michael Oguido and Sharon Murphy of Trust Medical Supply are accused of submitting fraudulent claims for things like power scooters and other supplies.
In a separate indictment, Imeh Ebere and Sheila Hives of Golden Medical Supply allegedly schemed to get reimbursed for the sale of prosthetic devices.
On Thursday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said the takedown is one of the largest of its kind.
"Such activity has not only siphoned precious taxpayer resources, drive up health care costs and jeopardized the strength of the Medicare program, it also disproportionately victimized the most vulnerable members of our society including the elderly, disabled and impoverished Americans."
In all, 91 people were arrested in the nationwide dragnet. Collectively, they are charged with illegally billing medicare in the neighborhood of $430 million dollars.
