Man Sentenced for DME Fraud


Jordan Thomas Broome has been sentenced to 66 months in prison for conspiring to defraud Medicare of more than $2 million by submitting thousands of fraudulent claims for durable medical equipment (DME). According to court documents, he was the owner and operator of Beach Medical Suppliers LLC. Working with other companies and individuals, Beach Medical would unlawfully obtain the personal identifying information of elderly Medicare beneficiaries, mail them braces that they never wanted or needed, and then submit fraudulent bills to Medicare. The scheme included a network of doctors who would “robo-sign” prescriptions for patients the doctors had never met. Read a Department of Justice press release.
