LA scam artist shows how easy it is to set up fake clinics and pay off docs to scam Medicare

Businessweek is reporting that "Sherman Oaks resident Eduard Aslanyan, 37, admitted to establishing a series of fraudulent Los Angeles-area clinics to scam the federal medical health insurance provider between March 2007 and September 2008, according to a statement from the Department of Justice on Wednesday.  Aslanyan's complex scheme involved recruiting doctors to sign off on being medical directors for the fraudulent clinics and then recruiting Medicare beneficiaries whose billing information was used for expensive and medically-unnecessary wheelchairs and diagnostic tests, according to the statement."
