Man Pays the Price for Pizza, Goodies


A man would go to low-income housing or senior residential units and would put on pizza parties or ice cream socials. He would get those gathered to provide their personal information. He would also submit bogus bills to Medicare and Medicaid on behalf of beneficiaries who didn’t need the goods. He was sentenced to nearly four years in prison and must pay back $800,000.
